Storyboard Text

  • The word 'tragedy' suggests that these men are almost causing trouble for the navy.
  • "British Explorers Steve Brooks and Quentin Smith almost led to tragedy..."
  • "the men were plucked from the icy water by naval ships..." this suggests that the men were acting immature and are wasting the officials time. the word 'plucked' in particular traditionally refer to something that is unwanted, such as the chaos in this situation.
  • "Boys messing about with a helicopter" this suggests that Mr Brooks wife views the two as children who did not think twice before playing around with a helicopter.
  • "the Royal Navy's ice patrol ship, HMS Endurance", "dispatched it's two Lynx helicopter". This implies the stupidity of the two men.
  • I have been flying since I was 5 years old.
  • The paragraph starting "Mr Smith... claims to have been..." further highlights their stupidity as it states that they are experienced with flying helicopters. it then states later on that " it is not the first time they have hit the headlines for the wrong reasons." this then suggests that they have caused a lot of trouble in the past.
