1~110期 抗戰至遷臺 中國的空軍 雜誌

On Dec. 27, 1974, Army Commander Gen. Yu Hao-zhang (于豪章) received a briefing during the Chang Ping Exercise (昌平演習). After that, he boarded the helicopter bound for Kengzikou to make an inspection. But shortly after, the UH-1H and another helicopter of the same type both crashed due to sudden changes in weather, killing 13 officers and devastating their families despite Yu’s survival. One of the victims was Col. Zhu Shi-qi (朱世祺), then-Chief of Staff of the Office of the Commander.
Years after the accident, Chu’s wife, Ms. Tan Xian-ping (譚羨平), a nurse at the Air Force, took her three young daughters to the United States and tried to make a living there on her own. Unfortunately, it is said that Ms. Tan and two of her daughters died in a car crash more than a decade ago in Los Angeles. Only the youngest, Zhu Jian-mei (朱健梅), survived.
Col. Chu Shih-qi, resting in peace in the Yangmingshan No.1 Public Cemetery (陽明山第一公墓) in Taiwan, must have missed his daughter very much.
LOOKING FOR ZHU JIAN-MEI!
Our utmost respect for those who sacrificed for our country!
