    P2V-7U in Hsinchu on Dec 17, 1957

    The above photo, taken on December 17, 1957, should be one of the very first photos of the P2V-7U (a.k.a. RB-69A) operated by ROCAF.  The photo, despite the poor quality due to photocopying, shows that the aircraft still retained their USAF markings, indicating that it was probably taken shortly after the two P2V had arrived in Hsinchu.  This photo also confirms the description by Wings of China, Vol. 3 (p. 202) that “P2V had removed all their markings and identification before they had arrived in Taiwan” was wrong.

    上面這張1957年12月17日攝於新竹基地的照片,應該是目前已知最早的一張我國空軍P2V-7U照片。這張照片雖然因為多次影印的緣故而不太清晰,但是仍然可以看到這架飛機上美國空軍的標誌,因此這張照片極有可能是在兩架P2V抵達新竹後不久就拍攝的。由此我們也可以知道,中國之翼第三輯第202頁「來到台灣的P2V已事先塗去了機身上任何標誌與號碼」的敘述是錯的。

    In the post “Photos of Hsinchu AFB in 1957-1958”, I have shown an aerial photo of the 34th Squadron’s operating area.  That photo was taken on the same day as the above one and shows that two P2V were parked on the new completely paved hardstand.  I am confident that the new construction described in that post had been done specifically for the P2V.

    我在稍早寫成的”Photos of Hsinchu AFB in 1957-1958″這一則短文中,已經刊出一張34中隊在新竹基地的活動區域的空拍照片,那張照片跟上面這一張攝於同一天,而且顯示了有兩架P2V停在新完成的機坪上。個人認為那篇短文中所提到新建設施都是為了迎接P2V的來到而進行的。
