[NCE-2] Lesson 29 - Taxi !

Captain Ben Fawcett has bought an unusual taxi and has begun a new service.

The 'taxi' is a small Swiss aeroplane called a 'Pilatus Porter'.

This wonderful plane can carry seven passengers.

The most surprising thing about it, however, is that it can land anywhere: on snow, water, or even on a ploughed field.

Captain Fawcett's first passenger was a doctor who flew from Birmingham to a lonely village in the Welsh mountains.

Since then, Captain Fawcett has flown passengers to many unusual places.

Once he landed on the roof of a block of flats and on another occasion, he laned in a deserted car park.

Captain Fawcett has just refused a strange request from a businessman.

The man wanted fo fly to Rockall, a lonely is land in the Atlantic Ocean, but Captain Fawcett did not take him because the trip was too dangerous.
