20 Mar 1998 [msh] 6828 RoCAF 21 TFS F-16B Block 20 News Article
Crashed in the Taiwan Strait about 55 kilometres west of Huayu islet at Ma-Kung. The accident happened at 14:30 hours while conducting tactical manoeuvre training. Ships and helicopters were used to find the crew, Major Chin-Sung Wen and a student Captain Chia-Cheng Chan. But the search was hampered by strong winds and waves and was in vain. The loss was Taiwan's first with the F-16. Hence all Taiwan F-16's were grounded. F-16B's started flying again on March 25 while F-16A's flew again on March 26.
