Description

Jet Age - Series F86 Sabre

�Those were the days����.�

Just a little exercise in nostalgia - a couple of nights ago here there was a fine colourful sunset with an airliner drawing a golden contrail out to the west. This formed the inspiration for this image - along with all the memories of the quiet beauty of such high altitude flight, long before the skies became crowded with commercial stuff - so the archive trawl came up with these F86 images and a suitable sky. The lyric just adds the final touch - if you can remember it you are of a certain age!!

One of the real classics of the early jet age the F86 (Sabre) saw much operational action in Korea and continued in front-line service well into the 1950�s. As elegant in design as it was capable in performance the Sabre remained a favourite with many Air Forces. The RAF took delivery of over 450 with the RCAF another enthusiastic user - there are numerous examples still flying, out of the 7,800 built, all in the hands of warbird restorers. The aircraft in the image flies regularly at the Duxford airshows.
