Severe weather

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

An Airbus A319, took off from Copenhagen (Denmark) en route to Moscow (Russia) with 96 people on board. Everything was normal as the plane reached its cruising altitude. One and a half hours into the flight, the plane encountered some CBs. Inside these CBs was moderate turbulence and hail. The hailstones were large and cracked both of the front windshields of the aircraft. Fortunately only the outer winshield layers were damaged and the plane passed through the CBs. The captain decided to continue the flight to Moscow because the damage to the outer windshields wasn’t a significant risk to the safety of the flight.
