Berikut ini juga teks recount yang bisa kita analisa generic structure-nya tentang peristiwa/kejadian yang berkaitan dengan penerbangan dengan pesawat terbang.
I am used to traveling by air and only on one occasion have I ever felt frightened. After taking off, we flew low over the city. It slowly went high to the sky. But, suddenly it turned round and flew back to the airport. An air-hostess told us to keep calm and to get off the plane quietly as soon as it touched down. Everybody on board was worried and we were curious to find out what happened. Later we learnt that there was a very important person on board. Earlier somebody told the police that there was a bomb on the plane. After we landed, the police searched the plane carefully. Fortunately they did not find a bomb and five hours later we were able to take off again.
