Carl smiled back at the air hostess. She was young and pretty. Just like my daughter, he thought. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 1), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

"How old are your sons?" Carl asked. "Five and almost seven. The older one has a birthday tomorrow". (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 1), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

He watched her bring the coffee. "She walks like my daughter, too," he thought. "And she is very young. She looks nervous, not sure what to do." (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 2), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

The bearded man pointed his gun at the passengers and shouted "SIT STILL!" (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 8), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

The two men were very different. The American Ambassador was a short round man with a loud voice which Helen disliked very much. He often wore open-necked shirts, and he had a very hairy chest. She disliked that too. The British Ambassador - a tall thin Scotsman from Edinburgh - wal always quiet, polite and well-dressed, but she did not always believe what he said. (...) she disliked them because they were both military men and their countries were much bigger than hers. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 9), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

The bearded man was in the Captain's cabin, and the young man in the black shirt was watching the other passengers. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 10), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

"You look like a child," Carld said. "You're only two years older than my daughter. (...)" (...) The girl looked worried and angry. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 10), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

(...) he could see the bearded hijacker sitting inside. He had a long nose and dark hair and his eyes looked green from the light of the instruments in the dark cabin. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 12), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

Then he saw another man in a yellow raincoat come out of the airport building. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 14), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).

Two men in blue came out of the plane (...). Then some men in suits. (Skyjack! Vicary, Tim, Stage 3 (Chapter 15), Oxford Bookworms Library. Oxford University Press).
