F-86 Sabre (multiple)

F-86H Sabre (Pima 03-23-17) 0095

I photographed these examples of the North American F-86 Sabre (and other variants) at the Evergreen Aviation Museum, Palm Springs, PoF Chino, McChord AFB and the Udvar-Hazy facility. A sleek Mk.V Sabre built under license by Canadair was suspended inside the main hangar at the Pima Air&Space Museum, just one of four Sabre examples I photographed during a visit to Tucson in 2017. A visit to March AFB also yielded multiple Sabres, and several more at the NMoUSAF — including one with the skin stripped to reveal the inner workings.
