Rejected takeoff

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An old cargo plane was scheduled to fly from Paris to Egypt. It was taking off when the crew reported a problem with the nose gear. They had to reject the takeoff and vacate the runway. The crew taxied back to the apron and emergency services weren’t needed. The maintenance crew are still investigating the problem.

Important words: reject the takeoff, vacate the runway.
