C-130 military transport aircraft landed in Taiwan’s southern city Kaohsiung for refueling last Saturday.

The squadron is comprised of six T-50 training planes and two military transport aircraft C-130.

Three of the training planes departed Taiwan on Sunday afternoon, while the remaining planes will leave the country on March 13, 2017, said Deputy Director of Kaohsiung International Airport Yi-chung Sun (孫翼中).

Aviation fan Chao Chien-po (趙千博) told Apple Daily reporters, South Korea’s air force has been refueling the 13-meter long planes in Taiwan before departing for aviation shows held in Singapore and Langkawi in Malaysia over the last three years.
