Text: Plane spotters fly

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A Boeing 777 backtracked along the runway to prepare for takeoff. After turning and without stopping, the plane accelerated down the runway and took off. There were two people watching the Boeing 777 take off from a public road beyond the airport’s perimeter fence. When the plane turned and accelerated they were blown away by the jet blast, fell over and received injuries. An ambulance collected them and took them to the hospital. They left hospital a day later with no major injuries.
