【7月4日】看軍聞學英語

■刀客

原文:

Operation Inspiration started in Nova Scotia earlier this month and features the team's signature nine-jet formation. It was aimed at boosting morale amid the pandemic.

The Snowbirds have performed at airshows across Canada and the U.S. for decades and are considered a key tool for raising awareness about - and recruiting for - the air force. Eleven aircraft are used during shows, with nine flying and two kept as spares.

The air force obtained its Tutor jets in 1963 and has used them in air demonstrations since 1971. Prior to Sunday's crash, seven pilots and one passenger had been killed and several aircraft had been lost over the course of the Snowbirds' history.

中譯:

「鼓舞人心行動」本月初在新斯科細亞省展開,並以該特技小組特有的9架噴射機編隊飛行。該行動旨在疫情大流行期間鼓舞士氣。

「雪鳥」特技小組在美加各地進行空中表演已有數十年之久,且被視為提升人們認識加國空軍並作為該軍招募的利器。

加國空軍於1963年籌獲教練機,並自1971年起將之運用在空中展演。綜觀「雪鳥」特技小組的發展歷程,在週日的這次墜機事件前,已有7名飛官及1名乘員喪生,數架飛機失事。
