美“末日飞机”曝光 专为保护总统设计

导读:在电影《2012末日预言》中,美国一批政要乘坐一架总统专机逃难,而“末日飞机”则是这架飞机的现实版。美国空军近日罕见地透露“末日飞机”的内部情况,指出就是面临核战、陨石袭击地球等“末日环境”,它配备的防护装置也可以保护飞机上的政要。美国的“末日飞机”军事编号为E-4B,隶属于美国空军第55飞行编队,目前总共有4架。其主要作用是在美国面临毁灭性灾难时,保护总统、国防部长等军政首脑,甚至可把政府和军方司令部的技能暂时搬到天上。该飞机造价2.23亿美元,是由波音747型客机改装而成的,可搭载112人。此外,该飞机的油箱储量惊人,可以达到185吨,在空中停留数日也不需要补给燃油。

It can withstand nuclear blasts and asteroids, can stay in the air for days without refuelling and has the capacity to run the country or even a global war, the President's 'doomsday' plane is a steal at just over $220million.

The U.S. Air Force has offered a rare glimpse inside its 'doomsday' plane, built to protect the President and his inner circle from the ultimate worst-case scenarios.

Fitted with radiation and electromagnetic pulse shields and able to launch within minutes, the $223million plane is on standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Unlike Air Force One, which acts as the President's regular means of long-distance transport, the plane is specifically designed to run the government and the military from the air in the event of nuclear war.

The aircraft, which was last airborne in a crisis during the 911 terror attacks, runs on 165,000 pounds of state of the art electronics and is protected by an electromagnetic pulse shield.

The equipment on board is so powerful a specially upgraded air conditioning system is required to keep the electronics cool enough to work efficiently - and a specially trained team of tech-whizzes stay on board to man the devices.

The plane is also protected by thermo-radiation shields in case of a nuclear strike.

Despite its size, the modified 747 can fly for days without refuelling and all E-4B aircraft, as they are technically known, can reach speeds up to 620 miles per hour, 40 miles per hour faster than their commercial counterparts.
