The North American F-86 Sabre, sometimes called the Sabrejet, is a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the United States' first swept-wing fighter that could counter the swept-wing Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights in the skies of the Korean War (1950"1953), fighting some of the earliest jet-to-jet battles in history. Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces.

Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan, and Italy. In addition, 738 carrier-modified versions were purchased by the US Navy as FJ-2s and -3s. Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadair Sabre added another 1,815 aircraft and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre (sometimes known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run of 112. The Sabre is by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with a total production of all variants at 9,860 units.

The fighter-bomber version (F-86H) could carry up to 2,000 lb (907 kg) of bombs, including an external fuel-type tank that could carry napalm. Unguided 2.75-inch (70-millimeter) rockets were used on some fighters on training missions, but 5-inch (127 mm) rockets were later carried on combat operations. The F-86 could also be fitted with a pair of external jettisonable jet fuel tanks (four on the F-86F beginning in 1953) that extended the range of the aircraft. Both the interceptor and fighter-bomber versions carried six 0.50 in (12.7 mm) M3 Browning machine guns with electrically-boosted feed in the nose (later versions of the F-86H carried four 20 mm (0.79 in) cannon instead of machine guns). Firing at a rate of 1,200 rounds per minute, the 0.50-inch guns were harmonized to converge at 1,000 ft (300 m) in front of the aircraft, using armor-piercing (AP) and armor-piercing incendiary (API) rounds, with one armor-piercing incendiary tracer (APIT) for every five AP or API rounds. The API rounds used during the Korean War contained magnesium, which were designed to ignite upon impact, but burned poorly above 35,000 ft (11,000 m) as oxygen levels were insufficient to sustain combustion at that height. Initial planes were fitted with the Mark 18 manual-ranging computing gun sight. The last 24 F-86A-5-Nas and F-86Es were equipped with the A-1CM gunsight-AN/APG-30 radar, which used radar to automatically compute a target's range, which later proved to be advantageous against MiG opponents over Korea.

Only Mark 3. First Canadair-built Sabre with Orenda engine. First flown with GE J-47 engine, 14 June 1952. Converted to Orenda 3. First flight with Orenda on 25 Sep 1952, used by Canadair for trials before passing to RCAF. Nearly lost in high speed dive by Canadair pilot W. Longhurst during early tests, when spanner left in cockpit jammed elevator controls during manufacturers trials. Pilot bent spanner during recovery. The unpainted aircraft acquired the project name “Experimental Orenda Prototype”, shortened to the stencilled letters “E.O.P.” on the tail. To Edwards AFB in California for calibrations and other trials in April 1953. Used by Jacqueline Cochran to set 3 world speed records for women in May and June 1953, from Edwards. Carried no markings apart from serial number on tail for these flights. On May 17, 1954 Cochran became the first woman through the sound barrier. Later brought up to full Mk. 4 standards, but apparently not re-designated. During 1953-1954 the aircraft was used by Canadair for flight testing. It was delivered to RCAF Central Experimental and Proving Establishment 21 June 1954. Used by AFHQ Jet Flight at RCAF Station Uplands. To Instructional Airframe 613B. On display at St. Jean, Quebec, June 1954-June 1969. Preserved, on display at former RCAF Station Downsview, Ontario in the 1980s. Later with the Western Canada Aviation Museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba. By 2000 at the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskawin, Alberta. Current 2023. last update: 2024-February-19
