Taoyuan Air Base
As of the late 1990s, the longest runway at Taoyuan was reportedly 10,044 feet long.
Taiwan obtained an initial batch of of American F-104 Starfighters in 1960-61, and eventually received over 200 of these aircraft, all of which were withdrawn from service in the early 1990s. The Starfighters were operated by the 2nd/499th Tactical Fighter Wing at Hsinchu, the 3rd/427th TFW at Ching Chuan Kang AB, and the 5th/401st Tactical Combined Wing at Taoyuan.
