443rd Tactical Fighter Wing
(1st Tactical Fighter Wing)
The 443rd Tactical Fighter Wing is located at Tainan Air Base and is organized with three fighter squadrons that fly the IDF.
The 443rd is also referred to in some publications, most notably Jane's Sentinel as the 1st Tactical Fighter Wing.
The 1st Fighter Group was also a part of the 443rd until possibly 2003 when the unit is believed to have been inactivated as part of a reorganization of the ROCAF.
On September 27, 2003 an IDF aircraft from the 443rd Tactical Fighter Wing was involved in an accident and was destroyed. The two aviators safely ejected. The serial number of the aircraft was 1625.
