Making full use of the captured German aerodynamic research material, the North American F-86 Sabre is one of the most important aircraft of the early jet era.

Boasting a distinctive 35-degree wing sweep, three nose mounted .50 calibre machine guns, as well as a host of design philosophies from the famous piston engined predecessor. A true aviation classic, the Sabre entered service with the U.S Air Force in 1949 and at the time, was the fastest fighter aircraft in the world.

A later development of the classic Sabre, the F-86F-40 variant was the ultimate day fighter version of this famous aircraft and featured a number of improvements which kept the Sabre at the forefront of world fighter technology.

With a new engine giving the aircraft more power this variant re-introduced the leading edge slats to the '6-3' wing area increase, enhancing the dogfighting capabilities of this famous fighter, whilst at the same time reducing the aircraft's landing approach speed to a much more manageable 124 mph. These modifications proved so successful that many earlier variants of the Sabre were retrospectively upgraded to include these advancements.
