A wire strike !

In 1971 an Australian Sabre Fighter aircraft struck two high tension power cables slang across a ravine. Although striking the wire at near 800 km per hour amazingly the aircraft and pilot survived. The Sabre is now on display.

Video link :-

Wire strike F86 Sabre

One on the nose and watch the video to see the one on the fin.

QF-86F Sabre Jet

At the other end of it's life the final use of many of the F-86F Sabre Jets as live fire target drones at the Naval Weapons Center at China Lake. It's a shame to see these beautiful jets blown out of the sky.

Gorgeous F-86 Sabre giant scale aircraft flight by Pablo Consejo at Cerdanya Jets 2019.

This was among the largest aircraft in the entire event and Pablo made a wonderful demo against the beautiful backdrop of the Pyrenees.

An excellent video filmed by Airguardian yes.

The F-86 in the video is equipped with a JetCat P-220Rxi. Cerdanya Jets is an international R/C jet meeting organised in Catalonia, in the historical region of the eastern Pyrenees commonly known as 'La Cerdanya'.

A f-86 Sabre of Korean war fame makes an emergency landing when one of its gear fails to drop at an airshow.

An excellent touch down.

This 1/3.5 scale F-86 Sabre was perfectly built and absolutely massive!

Flown by Brian O'Meara in the Pro-Am Jet class, the model was built from a Tomahawk kit by the master Trond Hammerstad of Exactaircraft.com and modelled after Erich Hartmann's "Black Tulip" circa 1959.

Brian finished 3rd in the category with the airplane.
