Welcome to the follow up issue to ‘B17 Flying Fortress.’

In this issue of ‘Aviation Classics’ we move forward only a little in time, but with a quantum leap in design and technology. The North American Aviation’s ‘F86 -Sabre’ or Sabrejet, was one of the most beautiful aircraft of its generation.

Edited and compiled by Tim Callaway, who comes from an aviation background, has extensive knowledge of all things aviation-related. This issue comprises the publication’s now-established high-quality mix of features and photographs. This 132 page glossy A4 perfect bound 'bookazine' includes the following -

  • The development of the Sabre family and exploding a few myths and revealing a few surprises along the way since it entered service with the US Air Force in 1949.
  • More about the F-86 in combat over Korea, becoming the primary air-to-air jet fighter used by the Americans.
  • Examination of the lesser known F-86 aerobatic teams, with all new illustrations
  • And much more!
