Background info:
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 was
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.

An agreement was reached that allowed Taiwan’s AIDC Company and Northrop to jointly
produce the F-5E. The first AIDC-built F-5E rolled off the production line on October 30,
1974. This was one day prior to the Taiwan President Chiang Kai Shek’s birthday so the
aircraft was name “Chung Chen” (an alias of President Chiang). By the end of November
1977 100 aircraft had been completed. Later an additional 208 aircraft were produced in
five batches but this was increased as time went on. The last F-5 of the program was
completed on December 9, 1986 with a final total of 242 F-5E and 66 F-5F.
