飞错国旗,两车相撞……特朗普艳羡的法国阅兵式,居然垮成这样?_最新英语新闻

Two French police motorcyclists suffered an embarrassing crash after miscalculating their entry onto Place de la Concorde during a Bastille Day parade in front of President Emmanuel Macron and other guests.

“巴士底日”在法国总统伊曼纽尔麦克伦和其他客人面前,两名法国警察误算进入协和广场时间,造成了一场令人尴尬的撞车事故。

The motorcyclists were part of a group of drivers from the gendarmerie who were tracing patterns in the plaza as part of a carefully choreographed performance.

这群来自宪兵队的摩托车手会在广场上追踪图案,本来这是精心设计表演的一部分。

The duo were supposed to mirror another pair of drivers – coming straight towards each other before peeling off to the side.

这两人本来应该与另一对司机呈对称阵列,他们会直接向对方开去,随后从侧向离开。

But, in video taken of the parade, it appears either one or both of the drivers miscalculates the move, and one of the bikes crashes into the other – toppling both riders.

但是,在游行的视频中可以发现,貌似其中一个或两个司机都错误地估算了时间,导致两辆摩托车相撞,两名车手纷纷倒地。

The drivers immediately attempt to get back on their vehicles, but while one manages to stand his upright pretty quickly, the other struggles to lift the heavy bike. The weight is so great it even causes his feet to slip on the road as he tries to pick it up.

车手们试图立即骑车离开,但其中一人站起后,另一人却在挣扎着挪开压在自己身上的摩托车。笨重的摩托车是这位可怜的司机在站起后又摔倒在地。

Eventually, the other driver comes round to help him, and they manage to lift the bike together.

最后没办法另一个司机过来帮忙,他们一起把摩托车抬起。

The brass band continues to play and the other riders continue the display behind them as they remount their vehicles and finally drive off.

铜管乐队继续演奏,这些骑手重新登上摩托车和其他骑手们继续表演直至离开。

The gendarmerie did not immediately have any details on who was involved in the gaffe.

宪兵队目前还不清楚到底是其中的哪位造成了如此失态的景象。

Mishaps became a common theme, as, later in the ceremony, a warplane appeared to send out the wrong coloured smoke while forming part of a tricolore in the sky – adding a plume of red to the blue section of the ‘flag’.

但事情远没有结束,似乎失误已经成为这次活动的主题。在仪式后期由战斗机喷射彩色烟雾时又发生失误,原本按照法国国旗颜色喷射的三种颜色却在蓝色部分中多出一缕红色。灾难成为了一个共同的主题,在仪式的后期,一架战机在天空中形成了一个三色的部分,似乎发出了错误的彩色烟雾——在“国旗”的蓝色部分增加了一缕红色。
