The first F-104 Starfighter delivered to the ROCAF was #4301 c/n 683C-4054, model 683-10-19 U.S. serial 62-12250. In 1963 the aircraft received an ROCAF code of 4301 and assigned to the 8th TFS / 3 Wing, Ching Chuan Kang Air Base. Later the aircraft was transferred to the 7th TFS “Wolf” Squadron where it operated until March of 1991 when it was withdrawn from service with 5,317 flight hours. A decommissioning ceremony for ROCAF F-104s was held on May 22, 1998 at Ching Chuan Kang Air Base where 4301 is the Gate Guard.

The F-104 Starfighter was a revolutionary design with short razor-sharp wings. It was the first aircraft to be able to maintain Mach 2 not just in short bursts. The Starfighter shattered speed and rate of climb records that still are impressive today. This extremely high speed earned the plane the nickname “The Missile With A Man In It”. Because of financial considerations 15 or more countries purchased the F-104. The Starfighter flew with the USAF in 1958 and the last airplane was decommissioned in Italy in 2004.
