原文:

The Jolly Green II is manufactured by Lockheed Martin's Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and carries advanced and improved defensive systems. In addition to its combat duties, it will also provide civil search and rescue; medical evacuation; disaster response; humanitarian assistance; security cooperation and aviation advisory; NASA space flight support; and rescue command and control.

Maj. Andrew Fama, a 413th FLTS pilot, flew the helo during the refueling mission.‘It's rare for a test pilot to have the opportunity to test a new aircraft replacing the one he or she flew operationally and to be the first one to do something like this,’ he said.‘It was an honor to be the pilot to fly this mission and work with a truly professional test team.’

中譯:

此次空中加油任務,是由第413飛行測試中隊飛行官法瑪少校,負責駕駛這架直升機。他表示,對一個試飛官而言,要測試一架用來取代飛行員所飛慣機種的新式飛機,而且成為首位能做此事的人,實為難能可貴的機會;能擔綱此次任務的飛行員,並與一支真正專業的測試團隊合作,榮幸之至。
