    王錫爵第一次任務的飛行路線 (Approximate track flown by Johnny Wang on his first mission)

    王錫爵在1986年5月3日劫持自己駕駛的華航貨機到廣州,至今已經有二十五年了。也因為他在黑貓中隊事蹟公諸於世前就投奔中國,所以關於他所執行任務的敘述不多。
    Twenty-five years have passed since Johnny Wang “hijacked” the China Airlines cargo plane piloted by himself on May 3, 1986. His return to the “motherland” took place before the story of the Blackcat Squadron was revealed. So not much was known about the missions he had flown.

    對黑貓中隊稍有了解的人,可能知道王錫爵的第一次任務跟李南屏被擊落的任務是在同一天(1964年7月7日)執行的。也因為李被飛彈擊落,所以大部分的注意力的放在李的任務,王的任務反而變成配角。其實王的任務有一個重要的成果,就是在蕪湖機場拍到九架MiG-21,證實中國解放軍已經擁有這種高性能戰鬥機。另外,他在上海與定海附近,也拍攝到若干艘潛艦。
    Wang flew his first U-2 mission on the same day that Terry Lee was shot down. So much attention was focused on Lee’s incident that Wang was literally upstaged. In fact, Wang’s mission brought back some important intelligence. He photographed nine MiG-21 fighters on Wu-Hu airfield and several submarines near Shanghai and Ting-Hai.
