There's something very special about the early Jet age, that period from 1946 to the early 1950's that produced an awesome array of naive but wonderful planes. Perhaps the pinnacle of design and function in this era was achieved in the North America F-86 Sabre Jet. It's ability to sweep the skies of the Russian Mig-15 during the Korean War is legendary. The terminology being 86'd came to mean being finished or out manoeuvred.
