Another squadron [103 Sqn], also located at the facility, flew the C-119G/L transport aircraft until that aircraft was retired in 1997/98.

As of the late 1990s, the longest runway at Pingtung North was reportedly 8,000 feet long, while the longest runway at Pingtung South was reportedly 7,817 feet long.
