This agile fighter was used extensively by the US Air Force during the Korean War in the 1950s. In the first true dogfights between jet fighters, the Sabre was a worthy adversary of the Russian MIG-15. The versatile F-86F Sabre was later used by many NATO countries, and for aerobatics demonstrations . . . remaining in service until the early 1970s.
