Two bad movie trailers coming up. 

A follow on from Martin Gay's thread where Alan Gorham found this 'sombre' scheme. 

EX-Luffwaffe Sabre 6 - N1039C (s/n 1600 )

Briefly wore this 'sombre' colour scheme in November 1979 for its role in a motion picture 'The Last Chase'

Starred Lee Majors and Burgess Meredith.



The Last chase trailer from the original vhs or betamax !!!



The writer of the original script was his first ever movie script that he wrote at age 22 which was in 1970 and he now absolutely hates how bad the movie came out!
Penguin Vs The Six Mllion Dollar Man
Of course it's the 'Penguin' played by Burgess Meredith -Vs - ' The Six Mllion Dollar Man' played by Lee Majors.

CAC Avon Sabre

05/11/2019 23:02:44


Australian Avon powered Sabre


In 1951, CAC obtained a licence agreement to build the F-86F Sabre. In a major departure from the North American blueprint, it was decided that the CA-27 would be powered by a licence-built version of the Rolls-Royce Avon R.A.7, rather than the General Electric J47.
In theory, the Avon was capable of more than double the maximum thrust and double the thrust-to-weight ratio of the US engine. This necessitated a re-design of the fuselage, as the Avon was shorter, wider and lighter than the J47.
Because of the engine change the type is sometimes referred to as the Avon Sabre. To accommodate the Avon, over 60 percent of the fuselage was altered and there was a 25 percent increase in the size of the air intake.
