    1945年3月29日中午過後,美國陸軍第312轟炸大隊下第387、388、389中隊總共18架A-20輕型轟炸機輪番以傘降破壞彈轟炸位於永康庄的臺灣製糖株式會社三崁店製糖所。以上兩張照片分別由第387與389中隊的飛機拍攝,第一張照片中的傘降破壞彈看來似乎是100磅的。以下的照片則是第387中隊所拍攝,除了可見投彈後脫離的一架A-20,負責拍照的這架飛機應該飛得比煙囪還低!
    Eighteen A-20 of the 387th, 388th, and 389th Bombardment Squadron, the 312th Bombardment Group, attacked the Eiko sugar refinery (this is the name referred to by the American military; it was called Sankanten at the time) with para-demo bombs at 1300 on March 29, 1945. The two photos above were taken by the 387th and 389th Squadrons, respectively. An A-20 which had just finished the job can be seen in the following photo, taken by the 387th Squadron. The photographing aircraft was flying BELOW the smokestack!

    下面這張偵察照片是由美國海軍航艦漢考克號(USS Hancock, CV-19)的飛機於1945年1月3日上午拍攝,三崁店製糖所的大煙囪就在照片正中央偏左的位置。
    The following reconnaissance photo was taken by the aircraft from USS Hancock (CV-19) on the morning of January 3, 1945. The smokestack can be seen slightly to the left of the center.

    三崁店製糖所已經消失不見,如今取而代之的是大財團的廠房:
    The sugar refinery has all but vanished:
