    今年初,中央研究院的熱心人士在我的《旗山飛行場平面圖》留言,提供俗稱為手巾寮飛行場的戰後(1948年)空照圖連結。我把空照圖局部擷取如上,但只能隱約看出輪廓,大致與樹林口飛行場類似。繪製在Google Maps的平面圖如下:
    Sources in Academia Sinica sent me the link to a post-war (1948) reconnaissance photo of the so-called Shoujinliao (Handkerchief Bungalow) Airdrome in Kizan (Qishan). The outline of the airdrome is barely visible in the photo but is similar to that of Shulinkou in northern Formosa. Check out the drawing on Google Maps:

    劉鳳翰《日軍在臺灣》列舉的旗山地區飛行場中包括旗山(南)、旗山(北)兩座,我在《旗山飛行場平面圖》所指的飛行場就是旗山(北)這一座,而上圖的手巾寮飛行場位於旗山的行政區內,所以如果按照劉鳳翰的資料,理論上應該稱為旗山(南)飛行場才對。不過日軍大本營在捷一號作戰計畫趕工興建的「秘密飛行場」(請參考《卓蘭飛行場》一文)中,只有列出旗山一座,並沒有分南、北,但另外列出里港(南)、里港(北)兩座(未完成)的飛行場。由於手巾寮已經非常接近里港,因此我根據地緣關係,判定上圖中的飛行場應該就是日軍記錄中的里港(北)飛行場。
    Liu (1997) listed two airdromes in the Kizan area, Kizan North and Kizan South. I have written about the North airdrome. Since Shoujinliao is located in Kizan, the airdrome in the above photo should be named Kizan South in Liu’s naming convention. However, the Japanese war plan “Operation Victory One” listed only one airdrome in Qizan as well as two in Riko (Ligang), Riko North and South. (See my post on Takuran Airdrome.) I think Shoujinliao Airdrome and Riko North are mostly likely the same one, given the close proximity of Shoujinliao to Riko.

    • 版主您好:
      有關毛巾寮旁的飛行場稱謂,可參閱中研院one inch目標圖_里港幅,稱”里港北簡易機場”
      照理,這飛行場距里港約5浬,而旗山僅3浬,且其行政區就在旗山裡頭,稱”旗山南”並不為過.
      原則上尊重文獻圖資,稱”里港北”
