11 1. landing gear system Tips Background information1. landing gear systemTipsLanding gear system is a conventional aircraft tricycle configuration consisting of a nose landing gear (前起落架) and a left and right main landing gear on an airplane. Each landing gear includes a shock strut (减震支柱) with two wheel and tire assemblies. Each main landing gear wheel is equipped with a brake assembly with anti-skid protection. The nose landing gear is steerable after nose wheel touchdown at landing.To be continued
12 1. landing gear system Tips Background informationBackground information1. landing gear systemTipsThe nose landing gear is located in the lower forward fuselage (机身), and the main landing gear are located in the lower left and right wing area adjacent to the mid-fuselage.The landing gear is the structure that supports an aircraft on the ground and allows it to taxi, take off and land. Typically wheels are used. Malfunctions or human errors (or a combination of these) related to retractable landing gear have been the cause of numerous accidents and incidents throughout aviation history.
13 Background information 2. bumpy landingTipsBumpy landing is also called hard landing, which may result from emergency landing of any kind, such as wheels-up landing (belly landing),crash landing, etc. Before a bumpy landing, thepassengers are supposed to make preparationsby following the instructions on the safety card,“Tuck your head down on your lap, or againstthe seat in front of you, and brace yourself.”
14 3. fuel dumping (应急放油) Tips Background information3. fuel dumping(应急放油)TipsFuel dumping is a procedure used by aircraft in emergency situations before returning to a nearby airport shortly after take-off, or before landing short of its intended destination (emergency landing). Many aircraft require the ability to dump fuel because of landing weight restrictions imposed by the manufacturers.To be continued
15 3. fuel dumping (应急放油) Tips Background information3. fuel dumping(应急放油)TipsAlthough a plane may be able to take off at a certain weight, its structure and landing gear may only be able to withstand the impact of landing at a much lower weight. When fully loaded with fuel, most planes are simply too heavy to land safely without risking a landing gear collapse or other disastrous structural failure. Planes are therefore fitted with emergency fuel dump systems that release enough fuel to lighten the aircraft until they can land safely.

17 Making inferencesWriters often tell more than they actually say with words by giving you hints or clues that allow you to draw conclusions from information that is implied. Therefore, you need to learn how to infer so that you can go below the surface details to see what is actually implied (not stated) within the words of the story. Inferring, sometimes called “reading between the lines”, is what occurs when you draw upon prior knowledge to make a prediction about upcoming events in the story.
18 Making inferences Successful inferences can be achieved by: 1 perceiving the detailed description of an event, and sometimes the organization of the passage: the introduction, development and conclusion;2 trying to evoke in mind what prior knowledge you have, and sometimes understand the reasoning and logic of the author;3 relating the ideas and deducing additional meaning from them.
19 Making inferences Example My hand hit the jetty. It was like an electric shock that brought me back to my senses. (Para. 18, Text A)Question: What does it imply?
20 Making inferencesWe can infer from the above information that the author had almost lost his senses while he was trying to rescue the child. Concentrating all his efforts on the rescue task, he was unable to think about anything irrelevant. Having finished the rescue successfully, he felt totally relaxed. That is why when his hand hit the jetty, he suddenly resumed all his senses like being shocked by electricity and he knew that he was safe.
21 Making inferencesPracticeAs you read Text B the first time, use contextual clues, common sense and your knowledge to guess the possible answers to the questions between the paragraphs. Then compare your answers with your partner’s to see if both of you understand the author’s meaning in the same way.
22 Making inferences 1. What does “knowing grins” imply? “Knowing grins” implies that they regarded bumping as a common occurrence in flight.2. What does the news provided by the pilot imply?Based on our prior knowledge about what happens if there is something wrong with the nose-wheel steering and the whole landing gear system, we can infer that the passengers and the crew were all in danger, and it was highly possible that the plane would crash.
23 Making inferences3. What does the last sentence “The mother’s gaze held the child so fixed and intent …” imply?This sentence shows that the mother’s gaze at the child displayed a deep care and concern, which calmed down the child in order to keep her from being influenced by the outside dangers, implying that mother’s love was so great that it could help the little child conquer all the outside fears.4. What implication can you draw from this paragraph?This paragraph tells a simple truth that their survival from the possible air crash was a miracle, and a lot of luck.
