About Lesson

First listen and then answer the question.
听录音,然后回答以下问题。
What was‘sweet as honey’and why?

In 1963 a Lancaster bomber crashed on Wallis Island, a remote place in the South Pacific, a long way west of Samoa. The plane wasn’t too badly damaged, but over the years, the crash was forgotten and the wreck remained undisturbed. Then in 1989, twenty-six years after the crash, the plane was accidentally rediscovered in an aerial survey of the island. By this time, a Lancaster bomber in reasonable condition was rare and worth rescuing. The French authorities had the plane packaged and moved in parts back to France. Now a group of enthusiasts are going to have the plane restored. It has four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, but the group will  need to have only three of them rebuilt. I magine their surprise and delight when they broke open the packing cases and found that the fourth engine was sweet as honey—-still in perfect condition. A colony of bees had turned the engine into a hive and it was totally preserved in beeswax!

Notes on the text 课文注释

1  west of Samoa, 萨摩亚群岛以西。
2  worth rescuing, 有抢救的价值。
3  The French authorities had the plane packaged and moved in parts back to France.
法国政府让人把飞机包装起来,一部分一部分地搬回法国。句子中的动词have被称为使役动词,结构是have+名词或代词+过去分词。在使用这种结构时,我们可能不知道或认为不必指明为我们服务的人是谁,然而,这种结构比被动语态更强调“使”别人为我们服务这一事实。

参考译文

1963年,一架兰开斯特轰炸机在瓦立斯岛坠毁。那是南太平洋中一个很偏僻的小岛,位于萨摩亚群岛以西,距离群岛还有很长一段距离。飞机损坏的程度并不严重,但是,多年来这起飞机失事已被遗忘,飞机残骸也没受到破坏。于是,到了1989年,飞机失事26年后,在对小岛的一次航空勘查中那架飞机被意外地发现了。到了那个时候,状况良好的兰开斯特轰炸机实属罕见,值得抢救。法国政府让人把飞机包装起来,一部分一部分地搬回法国。一群热心人计划修复这架飞机。该飞机装配有4台罗尔斯-罗伊斯的默林发动机,但是他们只需要修复其中的3台。想一想他们所感受到的惊奇和兴奋——当他们拆开包装箱时,他们发现第4台发动机就像蜂蜜一样甜——发动机完好无损。一群蜜蜂把发动机当作了蜂房,发动机在蜂蜡中被完整地保存了下来。
