    From left to right: Capt Yu (余建華), Lt Col Liu (劉序), Lt Harry Armstrong, Col Sung (宋亨霖), Maj Chang (張育保), Capt Kuo (郭聖先), Lt Col Chow (鄒寶書), Capt Yeh (葉常棣). The date when the photo was taken is unknown. Dick Reese, a former USAF reconnaissance coordinating advisor attached to ROCAF 4th TRS from 1962 to 1964, recalled that Armstrong might be the one he replaced. In addition, Yeh was transferred to the 35th Sq in late 1962. So the photo must have been taken no later than 1962.

    Yeh was shot down and captured on November 1, 1963, while flying a U-2 mission. He had spent almost twenty years in China until he was released and moved to the US. Chang was shot down and killed on March 18, 1965, on an RF-101 recon mission.

    • 照片之余建華沒印象,劉序我知,宋亨霖不知,張育保印象模胡,郭聖先記憶深刻(因我認為他蠻瀟灑)鄒寶書也飛過我飛機有記憶(他個頭好像是全大隊教官最矮的),葉常棣教官有一點印象但不敢肯定了 ,因我機堡是原RB-57用的大機堡,就在四分隊前,離大隊部很近,也因如此常看到U-2換跑道起飛拖行在我機堡及分隊前之滑行道上,(拖行時U-2機翼上總站著1-2個赤膊的美軍)
      照片應好像是民國52年前所照,52年9月我才調四分隊,RF-101所停機堡,離我T-33機堡約50公尺,我那兩張是54年左右照有迷彩,是因那時我跟照技隊一個老上士很熟,所以我的個人如辦通行證照片,都是托請他幫忙洗的,一給就給好大一張,我再用小刀割成一張張,我和詹文生及孟紀高上士(2人都管RF-101)同住在盛景廳俱樂部正後之原空勤寢室,我們管T-33之人和管RF-101人沒甚麼交集,只有單身管RF-101的薛鵬飛及住四號的機工長李貴誠,陳沃泉還喜跟我說說話,其他人不主動跟我們說話,事過境遷以幾十年,只有回憶了,謝謝版主貼這照片,讓我回憶當年六大隊教官們,謝謝。
