The two RF-101 at Taoyuan Aviation Museum and at ROCAF Museum in Kangshan were suspected as two C models painted with fake A-model serial numbers because both aircraft have the small air intake on the leading edge of the vertical fin which is a distinctive feature of the C model. The three official USAF photos below show the air intake on the RF-101C, which is indicated by an arrow.

Almost three years ago, I wrote about ROCAF F-5A/B, based on US Military Assistance Program Master File. The number of acquired aircraft given by the source was inconsistent with the number provided by CAF2000, an expert on ROCAF F-5. So I am going to post the passages about ROCAF F-5A/B I found in the CINCPAC History series. Hopefully we will have a clearer picture of this program.

I would like to share with you the information on ROCAF F-104A/B that I founded in the declassified series of Commander in Chief Pacific Command History. The 1960 History covers ROCAF’s first batch of 25 F-104A/B. Noteworthy is that it refers to the “reinstallation of M-61 20mm guns on these aircraft.” Does this imply that the US government had intended previously to deliver these aircraft without guns?

Taipei Air Station has some photos of ROCAF C-119, taken in 1958 while they were at Tainan AFB. These photos are unique in that they were taken shortly after these C-119 had been delivered to Taiwan. There are also photos of the 1st Fighter Group F-84G and various American aircraft at Tainan AFB. A must see!

If you can read Chinese, you may want to check out the archive from the National Digital Archives Program for more footages about the ROC military. Note that I used “ROC” instead of “Taiwan” because these footages dated back to the old days when the ROC government still ruled the mainland. For people who do not understand Chinese, I am providing hyperlinks to the digitized videos that I deem interesting. I will do my best to translate the Chinese description into English. Here is the first batch:
