    The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonic
    fighter with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. The F-5 first flew on July 30,
    1959 with the first customer delivery in 1964. The last of more than 2,600 F-5�s were
    produced in 1989 and about two-thirds of these are still in service with 26 countries more
    than 4 decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license
    in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.

    To mark the 2018 open house held at Taitung (actually called Chih-hang, or Zhihang in
    pinyin) Air Base the ROCAF 7th FTW painted three F-5 Tiger II aircraft with tiger schemes.
    The three aircraft were F-5E 5291, F-5Fs 5395 and 5403. All the markings symbolize
    various items such as the striping for being bred at the air base referred to as the Tiger
    Nest; yellow and black represent the tiger�s tenacity and bravery. The 7th FTW is
    responsible for training pilots in jet aircraft so they can fly to more advanced jet fighters.
