F-86 Sabre Documents & Manuals


The F-86 Sabre (often referred to as the Sabrejet) is best known for its Korean War role where it was pitted against the Soviet MiG-15. Developed in the late 1940s, the Sabre proved adaptable and continued as a front line fighter in air forces until the last active front line examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994.

Early variants of the F-86 could not out-turn, but they could out-dive the MiG-15, and the MiG-15 was superior to the early F-86 models in ceiling, acceleration and rate of climb. With the introduction of the F-86F in 1953, the two aircraft were more closely matched, yet many combat-experienced pilots claiming a marginal superiority for the F-86F.

Many of the American pilots were experienced WWII veterans, while the North Koreans and the Chinese lacked combat experience, thus accounting for much of the F-86's success. However, whatever the actual results may have been, it is clear that the F-86 pilots did experience definitive superiority over the WWII-experienced, Soviet-piloted MiG-15s in Korean airspace.

Another rare and original USAF flight handbook. With details of flight procedures, as well as numerous photos of instrument/interior details, performance data, drawings, charts, and diagrams. This F-86 Flight Operating Manual taught pilots what they needed to know before entering the cockpit.
