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 with the ROCAF s/n 5101 and the U.S. military s/n 74-0958. The aircraft was 
assigned to the 443 TFW, 9th TFS. By the end of November 1977 100 aircraft had been 
completed. 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.
