          開在飛機上的麥當勞

          [日期:08-18] 來源:瀘江英語  作者: [字體: ]

            Forget the drive-thru, now you can eat your Big Mac and fries at an air-mazing McDonald's restaurant on this decommissioned aircraft.
            忘掉汽車餐廳吧!現在你可以在這架退役飛機上的麥當勞享用巨無霸和薯條啦!
            For the last 24 years the disused DC-3 plane has been parked beside the McDonald's restaurant in Taupo, New Zealand.
            過去24年,這架廢棄的DC-3飛機一直停在新西蘭陶波的一家麥當勞旁邊。
            The grounded passenger plane, with its refurbished red and silver interior and seating for 20, is very much a part of the restaurant and customers can enjoy their meal within the comfort of the cabin.
            這架客機現在是麥當勞的一部分。它的內部被翻新刷了紅色和銀色,安置了20個座位,人們可以在機艙里享受他們的餐點。
            Eileen Byrne, the restaurant's 59-year-old owner, says: 'The site was previously part of a car dealership, and the owner bought a disused DC-3 plane, which sat alongside the building.And when McDonald's purchased the site in 1990, the aeroplane came with it.’
            這架麥當勞的主人,59歲的艾琳?伯恩說,“這個地方曾經是一家汽車經銷行的,商行老板買下了退役的DC-3飛機,就停在大樓旁。當麥當勞1990年買下這塊地時,也就包括了這架飛機。”
            The DC-3 plane has been painted in traditional McDonald's colours, with the company's iconic lettering on the exterior, too. Diners can access the plane via a flight of stairs near the tail, and the public must go through the restaurant in order to enter the aircraft.
            這架DC-3被粉刷成了麥當勞經典的顏色,外面還標上了麥當勞的標志性字母。就餐者可以從機尾的階梯上去,穿過餐廳到達飛機。
            While the engines have been removed, the plane's propellers are still intact and the cockpit has been left in its original state, much to the delight of diners.
            飛機引擎已經被摘去,但螺旋槳還原封不動,而且駕駛員座艙也保持原樣,供食客參觀。
            Eileen said: 'We have a locked clear perspex door, preventing access and to ensure that items, such as the knobs on the joystick, are not 'removed for collection' purposes.However, we are happy to open the cockpit for enthusiasts and to take photos for them.There is a storyboard which explains the plane's history and photographs of her years in service.The plan was, and still is, to keep the appearance of the plane as original as possible.'
            艾琳說:“駕駛員座艙的透明玻璃門是上鎖的,這是為了防止有的人進來,把控制桿的把手拿回去‘收藏’。但是,我們仍愿意為飛機愛好者打開艙門,并為他們拍照留念。同時,機艙里還有一個故事板,介紹了飛機的歷史和她服役那些年的照片。這架飛機曾經是什么樣,我們盡可能保證她現在還是什么樣。”
            The plane, a Douglas DC-3 aircraft, was built in 1943 and was one of three used by New Zealand's South Pacific Airlines from 1961 to 1966.In 1971 it was renamed and used as a top-dressing plane, before being decommissioned in 1984.
            這架道格拉斯DC-3飛行器于1943年建造,是1961~1963年新西蘭南太平洋航線最早投入使用的三架飛機之一;1971年,她被重新命名,并用作施肥機;最終于1984年退役。
            After retiring from the skies the plane was placed in storage, having flown 56,282 hours during its working life.
            在經歷了56282小時的飛行生涯后,這架退役飛機被妥善保管起來。
