Falcon Models FA723009 USAF North American F-86D Sabre Fighter - 469th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, 355th Fighter Group, McGhee Tyson AFB, 1956 (1:72 Scale) "My God, we simply have to figure a way out of this situation. There's no point in talking about 'winning' a nuclear war."
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

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 kill ratio of 10-to-1. Interestingly, all 39 United Nations jet aces won their laurels in Sabres.

Four models of the plane (F-86A, E, F and H) were designated day fighters or fighter bombers, while the F-86D, K and L versions were touted as all-weather interceptors. Successive models of the daylight versions - all designed to destroy hostile aircraft in flight or on the ground - were equipped with more powerful engines and armament systems that ranged from iron bombs and rockets to machine guns and cannon. The three interceptor versions, on the other hand, were equipped with black radome noses, replacing the yawning jet intakes of the other models.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a USAF North American F-86D Sabre Jet that was attached to the 469th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, 355th Fighter Group, then deployed to McGhee Tyson AFB, during 1956. Now in stock!
