原文:

The 33rd Fighter Wing is the leading training wing for F-35 student pilots at the base. Although the F-35 is the Pentagon's newest and most advanced aircraft, the oldest Joint Strike Fighters in the fleet reside at Eglin. The planes are part of Lockheed Martin's earliest low-rate initial production(LRIP)batches.

The F-35 mishap marks the second accident at Eglin in a week's time. An F-22 Raptor crashed last Friday morning during a routine training flight near Eglin. The pilot was able to eject safely and had been evaluated by the 96th Medical Group; the crash occurred roughly 12 miles northeast of Eglin on the test and training range. An investigation into that mishap is also ongoing.

中譯:

第33戰鬥機聯隊是該基地F-35飛行學官主要的訓練聯隊。儘管F-35是美國國防部最新且最先進的飛機,但最老的聯合打擊戰鬥機隊亦位於埃格林,所屬戰機有部分是洛克希德·馬丁集團最先以小批量試生產的那幾批飛機。

F-35的不幸事故,是埃格林在1週內發生的第2起意外。1架F-22「猛禽」於上週五上午,在埃格林附近執行例行訓練飛行期間墜毀,飛行員安全彈射逃生,並由第96醫療群進行評估,墜機事故發生在埃格林西北方12英里處的測試及訓練範圍,該事故亦仍在調查中。

LRIP provides units for Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) and is also intended to prove out the production process.

小批量試生產可讓單位進行初始作戰測試及評估,而且也可用來驗證製程。
