Throughout the storied past of Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force, many aircraft have laid the foundation for today's fleet of air power. The F-86 Sabre, or SabreJet, is one of the cornerstones upon which the modern Air Force was built since its inaugural flight on Oct. 1, 1947. Members of the F-86 Sabre Association met recently on the flightline at Nellis Air Force Base, NV, to have one last reunion before disbanding after 35 years. The average age of the group is now around 86 to 87 years old. While the F-86's operational days came to an end long ago, the jet has found its home with the Air Force Heritage Flight, performing at air shows around the country.
