  Wen zhu-qiang Because of his outstanding academic performance, he stayed in Academy to be an instructor pilot. In May 1954, Wen searched for the Communist naval vessels near Dachen Island 大陳島with other wingmen. They encountered 6 MIGs and had a fierce air combat. Wen seriously damaged one enemy airplane; the rest of the enemies ran away. On July 6, he piloted an F-47 to support the ground troops in Dachen Island and to bombard enemy naval vessels. Above Zhoushan Island舟山島, he ran into many MIGs, but when chasing them to Ninbo寧波, he was surrounded and attacked by many MIGs. He died in this battle. In appreciation of his contributions, the government bestowed him the rank of Major.

  However, the plane lost control and dropped into the sea. Fortunately, he struggled to swim to the shore.
When conducting recon/photo mission in 1957, he was intercepted several times by the enemy planes. After the engagement, he managed to escape. However, he he was forced to fly toward Korea as he was running out of fuel. He anticipated that he might not be able to land safely, so he dropped the reconnaissance films from his plane in advance. He died in the failure of force landing. His valor set a good example of the Air Force traditional spirit of patriotism and bravery as well as the determination of sacrifice to accomplish the given mission.

Seven other F-5 series trainers and fighters on practice missions at the time of the mishap were asked to land at the base, before the forced landing was attempted.

The air force announced it would suspend all flights by F-5 series trainers and fighters until it has finished a complete safety evaluation.

There have been several incidents involving the aging F-5 series planes in recent years.

On June 17, an F-5F training jet crashed into a farmer's field in Chiayi County, killing the pilot and leaving his co-pilot critically injured.

On Jan. 27 last year, an F-5F's fuel tank exploded while the aircraft was taking off from Taitung Air Force Base.

The two pilots were able to escape from the aircraft.

 
 
 
2nd October 1997 (crashed on 1st)
Air crash:
Air Force investigates jet crashes near Hualien
( Central News Agency ) After examining the evidence found at the crash site, the Air Force yesterday said the crash of the two F-5 series jet fighters in Hualien County, eastern Taiwan, on Tuesday might have resulted primarily from human error, including misjudgments of the flight altitude and the overshooting of a designated turning point, reports the news organization. The Air Force already ruled out the possibility that one of the ill-fated planes might have sideswiped the other before the accident.

Air Force Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Hsu Chia-chung said the investigation so far showed that the two planes, one single-seat F-5E and one twin-seat F-5F, had not flown at a required altitude of 1,500 feet (450 meters) as they approached the Chiashan air base in Hualien County. Hsu made the remarks as he attended a National Defense Committee meeting in the legislature. The planes crashed into the side of a hill called Hotienshan at a height of between 500 and 600 feet (150 and 180 meters), Hsu said. All three airmen were killed in the crash.

TAIPEI, Nov. 14 Kyodo

A Taiwan air force fighter crashed Wednesday into the Taiwan Strait but its two crew members have been rescued, military officials said.

The crash of the Mirage 2000-5, which occurred at 12:40 p.m. some 45 kilometers off the island's northwestern coast, brings to three the number of doomed French-made fighters belonging to the air force.

Air force headquarters said the two-seater fighter took off on a routine training mission from Hsinchu Air Base at 12:19 p.m. Air controllers lost contact with the aircraft immediately after its crew reported that an engine had stalled.

Both crew members, Lt. Col. Liu Hao-fan and Lt. Col. Chang Chien-hsiao, safely ejected and were later plucked from the strait, the officials said, adding that they are being transported to hospital to be treated for hypothermia.

 

(WRT the ROCAF F-104 attritions list out there, I was bored and went through
the pilots' names, and they seemed to have a small community, as some names
appeared twice. I initially thought these were typing mistakes, but multiple
names appeared twice. Some pilots were killed at their second appearance...
OTOH, I fed the names into Yahoo! Taiwan News, and was surprised at least
two were still in the ROCAF as Generals, now in May 2007!)

Date Details
September 9, 1962 Huai Chen took off from Taoyuan at 0600 for a mission on military deployment in Jiangxi region in U-2C "378". He was shot down by SA-2 fired by PLAAF 2nd Surface-to-Air Guided Missile Battalion over Nanchang. Chen was alive when he was found but died at the hospital.
November 1, 1963 Robin Yeh flew this mission on nuclear weapons facilitie in northwestern China in U-2C "355". He was shot down by SA-2 fired by PLAAF 2nd Surface-to-Air Guided Missile Battalion over Jiangxi and was captured alive by the Chinese Communists. He was released to Hong Kong on November 10, 1982.
July 7, 1964 Terry Lee took off in 362 from NAS Cubi Point, Philippines on a mission on China's supply lines to North Vietnam. He was shot down by SA-2 fired by PLAAF 2nd Surface-to-Air Guided Missile Battalion over Fujian and was killed. A Chinese source claimed that his ejection seat was not armed and so could not fire.
January 10, 1965 Jack Chang took off in 358 from Taoyuan at about 1830 and the aircraft was shot down in Inner Mangolia at about 2115 by missiles fired by PLAAF 1st Surface-to-Air Guided Missile Battalion and was captured alive. He was also released on November 10, 1982. Alternative story: Jack Chang took off from K-8 (Kunsan), ROK on a mission over nuclear weapon facilities in Shanxi. Correlated with Chinese sources, this was not true. There WAS a night mission attempted from Kunsan but this took place on or about Dec 19, 1964 and Johnny Wang aborted prior to penetration due to a failure of the ECM jammer self-test.
September 8, 1967 Tom Huang flew this mission in 373 over Jiangsu province, Shanghai, and Hangzhou. He was shot down by Chinese-made Red Flag 2 by PLAAF 14th Surface-to-Air Guided Missile Battalion over Jiaxing and was killed.
May 16, 1969 Billy Chang flew this mission along Hebei seacoast. The aircraft lost control approximately 100nm south of Cheju Island, ROK. The pilot was killed.

Training losses

Date Details
March 19, 1961 Yaohua Chih took off in 351 from Taoyuan for a night flight training. The aircraft veered off runway and burned. The pilot was killed.
March 23, 1964 Sonny Liang was in 356 for a photo training over Taiwan. The aircraft lost control due to improper handling. Liang ejected but was drowned.
August 14, 1964 Shihli Sheng took off in 396 on a training mission. The aircraft crashed near Boise, Idaho, USA, but the pilot survived.
December 19, 1964 Shihli Sheng took off from Davis-Monthan AFB in 379 for a training mission. He was lost while climbing through thunderhead and the aircraft crashed. Sheng survived but was forced out of the U-2 program. He was killed in a crash some years later.
October 22, 1965 Pete Wang took off in 352 on a photo training over Taiwan. The aircraft possibly lost control due to improper handling. The pilot was missing and presumed dead.
February 17, 1966 Charlie Wu was undergoing a high-altitude photo training. He shot down the engine when he got an overtemp warning. He attempted to land in CCK, which was the divert field and had a very long runway. When he saw a smaller strip, he decided to land there. But the airstrip is too short. The aircraft overshot runway during forced landing and crashed into civilian housing. The pilot and five civilians perished.
March 22, 1966 Andy Fan ejected from his first training flight.
June 21, 1966 Mickey Yu was on a long-range, high-altitude flight training when the engine flamed-out due to ruptured fuel supply line. He then attempted an unsuccessful forced landing in Okinawa. He bailed out but died of wounds sustained.
November 24, 1970 Denny Huang was doing take-off and landing training in Taoyuan while the U-2R "057" crashed. The pilot perished.

fan sites again.)

FYI, I graduated from the (then) Mechanical Engineering Department, Faculty
of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Toronto, and one of our
Mech Eng profs used to work on the Orenda engine destined for the CF-105.

10 October 1964:
ROCAF F-104A, 4205 (56-0842).
ROCAF F-104A, 4212 (56-0780).
ROCAF F-104A, 4216 (56-0787).
During National Day parade, these three were elements of the third of four
flights of four aircraft each.
Despite poor weather, the fly-by wasn't cancelled, and the aircraft flew
lower than rehearsed.
4212 hit an antenna tower and damaged its left drop tank and left wing.
Half of the drop tank and parts of the wing fell off, and hit a weather
bureau building.
Three civilians killed, including a weather bureau employee.
While its wingmen checked the damage on 4212, 4205 and 4216 collided and
crashed near Tai Bei (Tai Pei). One crashed in Ban Qiao, another crashed in
Tu Cheng.
Two pilots killed.
Wang Gan Zong on 4205.
Major Lin Heh Sheng on 4216.

4212 actually returned to base at Tao Yuan AB.

Wang also ejected from F-104A 4202 on 5 April 1962.

Please note that there can be up to tree ways of translating a name from the original Chinese script into western phonetical spelling. In the future all mentioned pilots where there is a photograph will be have an individual page to themselves where several spelling choices will be given

Other RoCAF aircraft are to be added to this list in the future as time allows - Thanks for your patience - and as always - any amendments - updates or extra that you can add are very welcome.
