The Aviation Notebook covers the development of the Sabre and all its variants including those built in Australia and Canada plus the FJ Fury naval versions. A serial numbers listing is included along with a summary of all operators. The key to greatness in any aircraft design seems to lie in its ability to be the right aircraft at the right time, and the North American F-86 Sabre jet fighter certainly was, blooded in the Korean War and serving with distinction with the air forces of no fewer than 38 nations. Regarded by many as the greatest fighter of the 1950s, the Sabre was far in advance of the jet fighters which immediately preceded it and was an outstanding commercial success with nearly 9000 built in five countries in nine major variants to fill the day fighter, all weather fighter and fighter-bomber roles. Add to that more than 1,100 Fury naval fighter variants which were produced and the result ia a classic of its time.
