    李南屏在1964年7月7日執行個人第七次時被飛彈擊落而殉職,因此後人對他所執行過的任務了解不多。他從美國受訓回來後的第一次U-2任務,是從韓國群山基地起飛的GRC 169任務,目標區是中國東北。
    Terry Lee, who was shot down on July 7, 1964, during his seventh U-2 mission, did not live to tell his story. Hence little was known about the missions he had flown. He flew his first mission, GRC 169, out of Kunsan, Korea, to cover Manchuria of China.

    1963年8月22日清晨,位於桃園的中情局H分遣隊接獲待命通知,準備於23日由群山基地出發執行任務。所有相關人員在22日晚間搭乘美軍C-130運輸機抵達群山,U-2任務機則是次日凌晨才到達。經過一夜的休息,李南屏在23日九時半駕駛358號U-2起飛,執行他生平第一次U-2偵照作戰任務。按照中情局在陳懷被擊落後制訂的無線電通信程序,這次任務的緊急呼號是TOM CAT,一般呼號則是TEA CUP。
    Detachment H was alerted in early morning of August 22, 1963, for a mission that was to be flown from Kunsan the next day. The pilots and the crew flew arrived in Kunsan on a USAF C-130 on August 22. The U-2, flown by an American pilot, did not arrive until early morning of the 23rd. Terry took off in Article 358 at 0930 hours for his first ever U-2 operational mission. His emergency call sign was TOM CAT while the normal call sign was TEA CUP.

    李南屏的飛行路線如上圖所示(按此下載kmz檔)。任務後分析機上12號系統,發現曾兩度接收到地對空飛彈系統FAN SONG雷達的訊號。
    The approximate track flown by Terry was shown in the image above (click to download the kmz file). Post-mission analysis indicated that System 12 had twice detected signals from FAN SONG radars of SA-2 surface-to-air missiles.
