China Airlines had purchased the Caravelles from Swissair. B-1852 was lost on November 20, 1971 while enroute Taipei to Hong Kong. It exploded in mid-air. The picture was taken at TSA, then the only airport in Taipei and was used for both international and domestic flights. It is now domestic only. Before international operations were moved to the present day Chiang Kai Shek Airport in nearby Taoyuan (50 Km away), the TPE code was used for Shung Shan Airport. The ROCAF also based their VIP fleet there.
