Sick pilots

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


Close to its destination, a small regional jet encountered severe turbulence as it descended through FL100. The aircraft was difficult to control and the crew even had difficultly reading their instruments. To make matters worse, the pilots began to feel sick as the plane descended through the turbulence. As the plane descended to 2,000ft the co-pilot vomited . The captain, starting to feel that he might vomit too, had to break off their approach and go around. They diverted and made an attempt to land at another airport. Once again in turbulence and on approach, the co-pilot became ill, vomited and was unable to fulfil his duties. This time however, the captain was able to land safely and they taxied to the apron as quickly as possible
