The Sabre is by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units. Right or wrong?

The North American F-86 Sabre (sometimes called the Sabrejet) was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as America's first swept wing fighter which could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War. Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in the Korean War, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras.

History of a Dogfighter

Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable, and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the last active operational examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994. 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.

Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadair Sabre added another 1,815 airframes, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre (sometimes known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run of 112. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units. The F-86A set its first official world speed record of 670 miles per hour (1,080 km/h) in September 1948.

Several people involved with the development of the F-86, including the chief aerodynamicist for the project and one of its other test pilots, claimed that North American test pilot George Welch had unofficially broken the sound barrier in a dive with the XP-86 while on a test flight on 1 October 1947.[20]

Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier on 14 October 1947 in the rocket-propelled Bell X-1 during level flight, making it the first true supersonic aircraft. Five years later, on 18 May 1953, Jacqueline Cochran became the first woman to break the sound barrier, flying a "one-off" Canadian-built F-86 Sabre Mk 3, alongside Chuck Yeager.

The North American F-86 Saber was a single-jet fighter of the American manufacturer North American Aviation from the 1950s.

In August 1945, after the evaluation of German development documents, it was decided to radically change the design and to equip it with swept-wing wings.

The wind tunnel tests, which were carried out with the 35 ° swept wing of the Me 262 HG II project at Messerschmitt, were mainly oriented.

Even with the automatic slats used to correct the tip stall problem, the Me 262 was a role model.

The history of the F-86 as covered by Classic Aircraft in 1998.

Voice over on the video is done by the late John Peel, and quotes that at the time of filming a F86 Sabre cost in dollars - $65,000, what a bargain !!!

Jeff Trappett's Sabre 30knts Crosswind Landing

You can see the left rear tyre blowing at video time 1:12.

Looks like he braked hard due to high speed and short runway and ABS on left wheel not working properly.
