    My condolences to the two SAF personnel, NSF or regular ?

    TVBS has the photo of the crash.

    Getting hit by a tonner is bad, but getting hit by an F-5F...

    May they rest in peace.

    We were saying our prayers when the Taiwanese driver drove up a steep cliff in their 5 tonner when I was training in Taiwan many years ago.

    What bad luck to be killed by a F-5 tiger.

    they upgraded the F5 fleet and waiting for F-15SG to arrive... as just what they did to Skyhawks to Super Skyhawks previously and got them replaced by F-16 Block 52.

    wonder if it's pilot error or plane instruments malfunction...

    old plane indeed but a brutal and fast jet...

    condolences to those who lost their lives

    Just heard on radio, 9 injured including NSF and they were in the storeroom.

    Two badly burned with 50-60% degree burns and was rushed to a Taiwan military hospital.
