• Reconnaissance Aircraft Received from US (我國經由美援獲得的偵察機)

    The following is a listing of the numbers of reconnaissance aircraft Taiwan received from the US since 1950, compiled from the Military Assistance Program System Master File. Although many aviation researchers/historians here may have known the exact numbers, I give the numbers here anyway because they come from an official source.  Note that reconnaissance aircraft received via the CIA are not included.

    • I will post here in this section as it deals with Reconnaissance Aircraft recieved from the USA. I am looking for an RB-57A (s/n 52-1455) that after doing some research through the Air Force Historical group at Maxwell AFB in Alabama, USA…I was informed that this particular A/C might have been sent to Taiwan. I note that Taiwan recieved 2 RB-57A’s pior to 1963 but this particular A/C was in the USA inventory untill 1972.

      Anyone know the where about’s of this particular aircraft, if it indeed, it did go to Taiwan? Thank You.

    • According to the article “RB-57A and RB-57D in Republic of China Air Force Service” by Wai Yip, the RB-57A-1 operated by ROCAF are 52-1427 (5641) and 52-1431 (5642). The particular aircraft you asked about was not one of them. May I ask where your information source is?
