法国真人版钢铁侠飞跃英吉利海峡,结果……
来源:21英语网    日期: 2019-07-27

漫威电影里,钢铁侠一身酷炫的装备加上黑科技辅助,能在空中自由翱翔。不过,现实中有人能做到钢铁侠这样吗?

可能还真有,法国发明家Franky Zapata就是先行者!

只不过,他这一次试图飞跃英吉利海峡的壮举,却没能成功。

French inventor Franky Zapata has attempted to make the crossing on a jet-powered hoverboard — but failed.

CNN援引路透社报道称,当地时间周四,Zapata踏上自己发明的飞板飞跃英吉利海峡,但是却在中途准备补充燃料的时候着陆船上平台失败。Zapata坠入水中,好在没有受伤。

 Zapata took to the skies Thursday on his Flyboard Air vehicle but missed a platform mounted on a boat as he tried to land midway for refueling, Reuters reported. He was uninjured in the fall into the sea.

“当我靠近平台的时候,船正好起伏碰到了机器下方,造成了损坏。我失去了平衡,掉落水中。飞板坏了,电器件部分需要重做,马达也坏了,好在基础部分还在。”

"When I got closer to the platform, the boat took a wave and it hit the foot of the machine and broke it," Zapata told a press conference Thursday."I lost balance, I fell in the water. The flyboard is damaged, the electronic part has to be redone, the motors are ruined but the base is saved," he continued.



当地时间上午9点,他从法国桑加特“起飞”,计划用20分钟完成这段22英里的飞行,此举也是为了纪念人类首次飞跃英吉利海峡110年。

He took off at around 9 a.m. local time from from Sangatte in France, was attempting to mark the 110th anniversary of the first aerial crossing of the Channel. He hoped to make the 22-mile journey in 20 minutes.

其实,他距离成功也不算太远,还有11英里的距离就到英格兰的圣玛格丽特海湾了,“我看到英国海岸了”他说。

He was around 11 miles from the finish at St Margaret's Bay, England. "I could see the British borders," he told the press conference.



其实,Zapata真正激发世人兴趣的,还是他在7月14日的那次表演:

时值法国纪念日举行盛大游行,Zapata在飞板上飞过巴黎上空,大约500英尺高,时速87英里——还有可能飞得更高。

The inventor captured the world's imagination when he took to the skies above Paris at Bastille Day parade on July 14 with the board that can reach an altitude of nearly 500 feet — with the potential to go much higher — and a speed of 87 miles per hour.




当时的场景令人印象深刻,法国总统马克龙也在推特上转发了一段Zapata的视频。

Even French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted a video of Zapata's exploits.


据英国《每日邮报》报道,Zapata的一身飞行装备,灵感正是来自钢铁侠,只不过他的飞板由5个小型的涡轮引擎驱动,燃料也是煤油。

His hoverboard was inspired by the flying suit worn by the lead character in the superhero movie Iron Man, and is powered by five turbojet engines. It is fueled by kerosene.



当然,这跟钢铁侠那身装备没法比,不过大家普遍认为他的造型更像是蜘蛛侠电影里面的绿魔(Green Goblin)。

尽管Zapata飞跃英吉利海峡失败,不过他没认输,并打算“最快下个星期”就去第二次尝试。

But not all is lost, as he hopes to make a second attempt to cross the channel "as soon as next week."
