RAAF CA-27 Sabre

RAAF CA-27 Sabre
An Australian built Sabre at Warbirds Downunder 2013. These were heavily modified versions of the US originals.

A week after taking this photo, I was chatting to one of my neighbours. I had always known that he was ex-RAAF, but knew little about his service. When I mentioned I had been to the air show, he began reminiscing about his time in the air force. Imagine my surprise when he said that he was rated so highly in flight training that he was selected for No.75 Squadron's Black Diamonds aerobatic team, flying Sabres with the same livery this one shows.
