Another wonderful picture – the contrasting color of the aluminium skin of the both F-86’s in the shot just give it that extra sense that these are aircraft are not sitting around doing nothing!
And it’s an early F-86A with the automatic gun port doors. Nice find!
These are great considering how long ago the Korean war occurred. I’m searching for these iages; F-86A FU-319 Tail; 49-1319 and F-86E tail: 51-2789. Both were “trophy” Sabres on Soviet priority list of wants and were shipped to USSR. I have details and am writing up their history for AAJS Journal shortly, but lack these one-in-a-million possible images. So far, nothing has turned up. Thank you and have a good day.
