The F-86L is an improved version of the F-86 D also known as the Saber Dog. Our F-86L is painted in the Perin Airforce Base paint scheme where it actually served in the late 50's and early 60's.
The first swept-wing airplane in the U.S. fighter inventory, the F-86 scored consistent victories over Russian-built MiG fighters during the Korean War, accounting for a final ratio of 10-to-1. All 39 United Nations jet aces won their laurels in Sabres.
