WANT to own a piece of Manitoba history, albeit a very large piece of history?
想弄块曼省的“巨大历史残片”么?

If so, you’re in luck: The infamous Air Canada Boeing 767 that made history as the Gimli Glider is up for auction in April.
机会来了:加航著名的“基米尼滑翔机”将在4月拍卖。

But you’ll need to have a bit of money in your bank account.
但是这东西可不便宜。

Terry Lobzun, of Collector Car Productions, the company holding the auction via avideo presentation at the Toronto Classic Car Auction on April 14, said the aircraft’s owners are expecting to get from $2.75 million to $3 million for it.
Collector Car Productions 的Terry Lobzun 称现拥有者的目标价格是275~300万加币。
(super注释:1800万RMB,不知是不是还得交HST?)

“It can be flyable and it can be delivered,” Lobzun said on Thursday from the company’s offices in Blenheim, Ont.
周四,Lobzun 在位于安省Blenheim 的办公室称该飞机仍可飞行,可以交付。

“To get it back into service, they’d have to jump through some hoops and it probably wouldn’t be economically feasible, but it can be flyable to deliver it to be put on display. It would be nice to see it at the Western Canada Aviation Museum or Gimli.
“要让这架飞机重新服役,还需要跨过几道门槛,可能经济上并不划算,但是它还是可以飞到展览的地方的。如果这架飞机能在西加拿大飞行博物馆或基米尼 展出,就再好不过了。
(super注释:西加拿大飞行博物馆 位于温尼伯,同基米尼一样位于曼省 )

“But if it went to Gimli, you’d just have to let the motorsport people know it’s coming this time,” he said laughing.
“但是,如果要在基米尼展出,你得提前打个招呼了。”

The plane is currently housed at a facility in California.
目前该飞机位于加州。

The aircraft gained fame when, because of a fuel conversion error between metric and imperial units, not enough fuel was taken on before it was bound for Edmontonon July 23, 1983.
该飞机因公制和英制差异导致的油料计算错误,于抵达埃德蒙顿前耗尽油料。

The plane’s engines ran out of fuel at 41,000 feet and the powerless plane was glided to the former air force base in Gimli, forcing spectators at a drag strip to get out of the way. Nobody was injured.
飞机在41000英尺耗尽燃油,于位于基米尼的废弃空军基地迫降.无人受伤。

The aircraft flew regularly until it was retired from service in 2008.
飞机在此之后仍然服役,直到2008年。

If the plane returns to Manitoba, it probably won’t be parked at the aviation museum.
如果飞机回到曼省,很可能不会停放在飞行博物馆。

Shirley Render, the museum’s executive director, said while the plane landed in Gimli with empty fuel tanks almost 30 years ago, it is still too new for their collection.
Shirley Render ,博物馆的执行董事,表示虽然迫降时间发生在30年之前,作为展品来讲,这架飞机仍然太新。

“It’s too much on what people fly today,” Render said.
他说,“这架飞机是还在执飞的机型。”

“Our focus is on the old planes which people don’t know too much about… it would be lovely but it wouldn’t be on our dream list.”
“我们的目标是人们不了解的老飞机。。。东西不错,但是我们不会要。”
(super吐槽:想要。。。)
