一架美國軍用飛艇週三從馬里蘭基地鬆脫飛走,在賓夕法尼亞州造成大規模斷電。

這架美軍監控飛艇,原本定錨於馬里蘭基地,但週三中午12時20分左右鬆脫飛走。

美軍由紐澤西緊急出動兩架F-16戰機監測飛艇動向,而它飄到賓州後落下。

飛艇墜入樹叢中,栓繩撞到電纜線,造成二萬居民斷電。

這艘飛艇機身有74公尺長,配有低頻長途雷達,可偵測範圍中的導彈或其他物體。

它可以偵測到方圓544公里範圍內的飛行物,以及224公里範圍內的車輛。

目前並不清楚飛艇鬆脫的原因。這架飛艇原本在3,048公尺高空,監控首都及鄰近的東海岸一帶。


英文原文:

A military blimp wreaked havoc throughout Pennsylvania when it detached from its anchor and escaped from a base in Maryland on Wednesday.

One of the U.S. military surveillance blimps anchored in Maryland broke loose at around 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday.

Two F-16 jets were scrambled from New Jersey to monitor the blimp, which descended in central Pennsylvania.

Before it crashed into a clump of trees, the blimp struck power lines with its tether, causing 20,000 people to lose power.

The 243-foot long blimp uses low-frequency and long-range radar to detect missiles or other objects within its range.

It can detect aircraft within a 340-mile radius, and vehicles can be detected within a 140-mile radius.

It is unclear how the blimp became detached from its anchor. The vessel, which ascends to 10,000 feet in the air, monitors the area round the capital and surrounding portions of the Eastern seaboard.
