One of your favorite miniature planes!


The North American F-86 Sabre is an American transonic jet combat aircraft developed in the late 1940s and was considered the most produced Western jet fighter of the Cold War era.

The F-86 was produced as both a fighter-interceptor and fighter-bomber and several variants were introduced, with improvements and different armament implemented. In 1949, the F-86 entered service with the United States Air Force, joining the 1st Fighter Wing's 94th Fighter Squadron "Hat-in-the-Ring" and it became the primary air-to-air jet fighter in the Korean War. Recent USAF records show that 224 F-86s were lost to all causes, including non-combat losses. In 1954, 120 F-86 entered service with the Pakistan Air Force and it became the mainstay of the PAF and provided a qualitative edge against a larger Indian Air Force. During the Indo-Pakistani war of 1965, the PAF claimed to have shot down 15 IAF aircraft. During the Indo-Pakistani war in 1971, PAF had eight squadrons of F-86 Sabres and it performed well, downing 31 Indian aircraft in air-to-air combat, with a loss of seven F-86s.

After the war, Pakistan replaced the F-86 Sabres with Chinese F-6 (Russian MiG-19) fighters and the remaining Sabres were withdrawn from service in 1980. The primary users of the F-86 are the United States Air Force, Pakistan Air Force and Portuguese Air Force. There are 9,680 F-86s built with 2,239 F-86Fs built.
