This is the text (if you need help).

There are many reasons for delays to airplanes. Five airplanes at an airport in Japan were delayed because of a small turtle. The turtle went for a walk on the airport runway. A pilot was waiting to take off when he saw it. The airport closed the runway. Airport staff found the turtle. They caught it with a net. The turtle was not hurt.

The turtle lived in a pond near the airport. It got into the airport under a fence. After staff caught it, an A380 airplane from the Japanese airline ANA took off. Strangely, the plane was painted in a turtle design. ANA said this was because turtles bring good luck. It hopes the turtle will bring a "bright future" to everyone.
