TIPS TO DESCRIBE PICTURES

You should try to answer the following questions:

The picture/photo shows …

This is a picture of …

In this picture I can see …

This is an incident that happened …

Where was the picture taken? on the apron, on the runway, on the taxiway, in the air….

If on ground, the kind of airport (big, small,…) – To support your opinion, describe the surroundings (woods, beach,…), the signs and markings (CAT II….), the runway(s), the tower, the vehicles, the people…

If in the air, the phase of the flight (climbing, descending, en route…) – To support your opinion, describe the pitch, the flaps, the gear…

When was the picture taken? after an accident, while the problem was happening…

How is the weather?

What kind of aircraft is it? If you can’t name it/them, describe it/them (engines, body, wings, winglets, tail…., cargo, passenger………)

What part of the aircraft is shown on the picture?

What kind of damage (if any) do you see? (hole, dent, crack…) (severe, light…)

What is happening now? (the aircraft is trying to land…, a ground vehicle is about to cross the runway...)

What has (probably) happened? (They may have gone through a storm. The engine must have ingested a big bird, a vulture for instance.….)

Why, in your opinion, is it happening or did it happen? (due to a rapid decompression, because of a disruptive passenger, in order to recycle the gear…..)

 

How does it compare to other accidents, incidents… you remember? (It reminds me of the Air France accident…)

Consequences

What can or should be done about it?  (There shouldn’t be any landfill near the airports…)

What is likely to happen in the future?

Express your opinion (In my opinion,.... I believe.... I think...
