F86 Sabre A5 Aviation Notebook

North American F-86 Sabre A5 Hardback Aviation Notebook

The North American F-86 Sabre was a single seat, single engined jet fighter that saw extensive combat with a variety of air forces around the world, most notably with the United Nations during the Korean War (1950 - 1953) where it was pitted against the excellent Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG 15. The F-86 first flew in 1947 and entered service with the United States Air Force in 1949. It was the first swept wing fighter in the USAF and on a number of occasions even penetrated the sound barrier. The Sabre also evolved into a carrier capable variant for the US Navy with the designation of FJ Fury (models 2 and 3). The F86 was built under licence in Canada by Canadair as the Sabre Mks 1 - 6 and in Australia by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation as the  CA-27 Mks 30 - 32.

Of the many skillful pilots that flew the F-86 Sabre four would go on to become extremely famous thanks to their involvement within the various American space programs: Edwin "Buzz" Aldwin, John Glenn, Virgil "Gus" Grissom and Gene Kranz.
