CL-13 SABRE

The North American F-86 Sabre was the first swept-wing jet fighter operated by the USAF and became legendary for its pilots exploits during the Korean war achieving a kill ratio against the Soviet MiG-15 of 10 to 1. Whilst there are no longer any airworthy genuine F-86 Sabres left in Europe, France based Mistral Warbirds operate this Canadair CL-13 Mk.6, the very last licence-built by the Canadians in a catching USAF camouflage scheme. Making its RIAT debut, Mistral will be sending their Sabre to this year's Air Tattoo to represent the early-jet age in our USAF 75th anniversary static display.
