澳大利亚称发现疑似马航失联飞机残骸

Two objects spotted in the southern Indian Ocean may be debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Australian authorities said Thursday, fueling hopes of a breakthrough in an international search of unprecedented scale.

周四澳大利亚官方称,在南印度洋被发现的疑似碎片可能是来自马航失联客机MH370, 这一发现给全球空前大搜索带来希望。

The objects are indistinct but of "reasonable size," with the largest about 24 meters (79 feet) across, said John Young, general manager of emergency response for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

澳大利亚海事安全局应急总指挥约翰·杨说,这两个碎片不是很清晰但与24米(79英尺)的客机非常吻合。

They appear to be "awash with water and bobbing up and down" in an area 2,500 kilometers (1,500 miles) southwest of Australia's west coast, he said.

他补充道,它们好像在2500平方公里处的澳大利亚西海岸的西南方向被浪冲打并且上下摆动,。

"If that piece of the plane is that big, maybe it's the tail section" said David Gallo, one of the leader of the search for Air France Flight 447, which crashed in the Atlantic Ocean in 2009.

“考虑到这个飞机的庞大,碎片部分很可能是机尾残骸。” 曾经担任2009年法航447航班搜寻的大卫·高罗说到。在2009年法航447飞机坠落大西洋。

The tail height of a Boeing 777, the model of the missing Malaysian plane, is 60 feet.

马航失联客机的机尾是波音777,长60英寸。

Flight 370 vanished over Southeast Asia on March 8 with 239 passengers and crew aboard, and the announcement raised the prospect of finding parts of the plane amid a huge search that is now in its 13th day.

马航370客机连同239名乘客和工作人员消失在3月8日东南亚上空,,到目前为止展开大规模的搜索已经是第十三天了。

The Australian maritime agency warned the images may not be related to the aircraft, but one aviation analyst said Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott likely would not have announced the discovery to the House of Representatives in Canberra without being reasonably sure of their find.

澳大利亚海事局提示道,图片可能与失联马航无关,但一位航空分析师说,在未能确定事实之前,澳大利亚首相托尼·阿博特是不会对堪培拉议院宣布这一发现的。

Officials cautioned that there were no guarantees that the objects now being investigated would prove to be from the missing plane.

官方警示:新发现的卫星图正在调查中,是否与失联的马航客机有关有待进一步确认。
