During 1960s to 1970s, the “Project Razor” of high-altitude photo-reconnaissance on China mainland cooperated by R.O.C. and the U.S. was a highly confidential military mission about which seldom people knew the contents. The members of Black Cat Squadron had to fly U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft into the sky of the enemy and execute the Recce tasks in the 70,000 feet high. Before executing the task, each member had to make a will in advance, and after undergoing the threats of missile and enemy fighter some come home, however, some did not. Facing these past stories, whenever they talked about these tasks, their eyes always revealed ease and composedness; from their humbleness, we have felt their enthusiasm about flight and the extraordinary contribution made to the country!
During the period, Black Cat Squadron had executed 220 confidential sorties totally. Their adventurous and courageous photo-reconnaissance history is finally revealed for the first time and the Ministry of National Defense will hold the “The Brave in the Upper Air -- Exhibition of Black Cat Squadron”. We sincerely invite you to understand this period of extraordinary history of the special task and to salute these brave pilots!
The exhibition area is divided into the following themes -“A Story of Great Era”, “The Birth of the Black Cat Squadron”, “The Brave in the Upper Air”, “The Glorious Black Cats”, “Flight Simulator”, and “Interactive Data”. The period of this exhibition is from Oct. 8, 2010 through Feb. 26, 2011, and the visiting time is from 9:00 to 17:00 Monday to Saturday (except national holidays). We sincerely welcome you to visit.
