A language teaching session, which revolves around the verbal communication exchanges between a pilot and a communication tower in both English and Arabic, produced by H. K. Lewenhak for Visnews.


A jumbo jet is seen on a runway and a flight plan from London to Beirut is shown. A series of verbal exchanges, between a pilot and a communication tower (Charlie Delta X-Ray [spelt CDX...?] and London Tower) begins. One whispers the same commands after speaking them clearly. Two men perform the same exchanges in Arabic. A plane takes off and flies over the camera. Similar scenes follow before a final shot of a plane flying over clouds.
