Canadair CL-13B Sabre 6 (North American F-86E)

In 1944, the debut of the ME-262 leads to the development of new jet aircraft. North American Aviation was working on the FJ-1 Fury for the Navy and F-86 Sabre jet design for the USAAF.

The Sabre was a sleek aircraft, using a low swept wing and tail surface design inspired by German WWII wind tunnel studies.  In 1951 the first great jet fighter of the USAAF went to Korea.  

Replacing the P-80 Shooting Star, the F-86 won back air superiority from the MIG-15. Although greatly outnumbered the Sabre earned its 10:1 kill ratio with aggressive pilots, proven tactics and WWII combat experience.  

Used by nearly all western countries the F-86 remained in front-line service for nearly 20 years.  This model is the fastest Sabre at over 710 MPH.
