原文:

Flight operations at Eglin Air Force Base have been suspended for a brief‘safety pause’ following two back-to-back crashes of stealth fighters less than a week apart.

In a letter posted on Eglin's official Facebook page, Brig. Gen. Scott Cain said 'I'm asking commanders at all levels to conduct a 'virtual safety day' on Thursday, May 21,' Cain continued.’I've asked my Safety Office to develop a safety briefing for use across the installation. Additional information and guidance on the safety day will be released through your chain of command. Please take this time to focus on staying safe this weekend, how we conduct our missions safely, and on our resilience.’

中譯:

2架匿蹤戰機相距不到1週相繼墜機,埃格林空軍基地已暫停所有的飛行任務,俾進行短暫的「安全停工」。

凱恩准將在該基地臉書官方網頁發布一則書信貼文,他在文中表示:「我打算要求各級指揮官在5月21日週四實施1天的『視訊安全日』。我已請安全部門製作1份安全簡報供全基地運用。其餘有關安全日的訊息及指導,將會循指揮系統發布。請大家利用這個時間專注於確保本週末的安全、如何安全的執行任務,並保持韌性。」
