原文:

An A-10 Thunderbolt II made a belly landing at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, after its pilot declared an in-flight emergency during a routine training flight. The A-10C, assigned to the 75th Fighter Squadron at the base, touched down without its landing gear extended.

Photos of the mishap surfaced on an unofficial Air Force Facebook page, showing the A-10 close-air support aircraft resting on its underside on the flight line as airmen and emergency crews responded to the incident.

The pilot, who was the only person aboard the single-seat jet, was not injured and evaluated by flight surgeons. The 23rd Wing could not provide additional details, but the base leaders have launched an investigation into the accident.

中譯:

1名飛行員在執行例行飛行訓練時,通報其所駕駛的A-10攻擊機發生飛行緊急狀況,隨後以機腹著陸,迫降在喬治亞州穆迪空軍基地。該架隸屬該基地第75戰鬥機中隊的A-10攻擊機,觸地時未伸出起落架。

該起意外事件的照片,出現在一個非官方的美國空軍臉書專頁上,照片顯示該架A-10密接空中支援攻擊機,以機體下側躺靠在停機線上;飛行員及搶修隊,則對該事件進行應處。

這架單座戰機上的飛行員並未受傷,並由航空醫官進行評估。第23聯隊則未透露更多細節,該基地高層已對意外事件展開調查。
