A Canadian air force jet celebrating front-line workers in the coronavirus pandemic crashed into a British Columbia home on Sunday, authorities and witnesses said.

當局和目擊者說,周日一架加拿大空軍飛機在不列顛哥倫比亞省的一處民宅墜毀,當時它正在為冠狀病毒大流行前線工作人員進行慶祝表演。


The flight was part of “Operation Inspiration,” a nationwide mission aimed at saluting first responders and other essential workers. The Snowbirds are a military acrobatics squadron based in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

這次飛行是“鼓舞行動”的組成部分,這是一項全國性的任務,旨在向急救人員和其他重要工作人員致敬。雪鳥中隊是軍方的一個飛行表演中隊,駐扎在薩斯喀徹溫省的穆斯喬市。

A video that appeared to capture the crash showed two jets taking off and flying side by side for a few seconds. One of them veers into the sky and seconds later is seen spiraling toward the ground.

一段視頻似乎捕捉到墜機畫面,該視頻顯示有兩架飛機起飛,并排飛行了幾秒鐘。其中一架飛機轉向天空,幾秒鐘后就可以看到它盤旋著沖向地面。

Kamloops Airport, located just west of the city, said in a tweet that emergency crews were responding.

位于該市西部的坎盧普斯機場在一條twitter消息中表示,緊急救援人員正在做出反應。

Kerri Turatus, who lives in the neighborhood where the plane went down, said the aircraft hit a house, engulfing it in flames.

住在飛機失事地點附近的克里*圖拉圖斯說,飛機撞到了一所房子,并引發大火將其吞噬。

It “sounded like a gunshot outside my window,” said Turatus, 30.

30歲的圖拉圖斯說,這“聽起來就像我的窗外響起了槍聲”。

She saw a "big black circle ring of smoke” in the sky, she said, adding that part of the plane’s wreckage was in the street, and she could see a wing sticking out of a neighbor’s garage. Photos showed the structure on fire.

她說,她在天空中看到一個“巨大的黑色煙圈”,她還說在街上看到飛機的一部分殘骸,她還看到鄰居的車庫里伸出來一個機翼。照片顯示這座建筑著火了。

It wasn't clear if anyone was home at the time.

目前還不清楚當時這所住宅里是否有人。

Operation Inspiration was announced on April 29 and began in Nova Scotia, on the country’s east coast.

“鼓舞行動”于4月29日在加拿大東海岸的新斯科舍省啟動。
