North American F-86H Sabre (3082)

North American F-86H Sabre (3082)
The Air Force's first swept wing jet fighter, the F-86 was flown by 20 other countries. In the Korean War, F-86 pilots shot down 792 Soviet-built MIG-15s at a loss of only 76 F-86s, a victory ratio of 10:1. All 36 allied jet aces in the Korean War flew the F-86. It was the first aircraft to set a speed record of over 700 MPH (715.697 MPH on July 16, 1953). This plane on exhibit at Castle Air Museum honors Major Robert Love, a Korean War ace with six victories to his credit.
