The F-86H Sabre was produced during the mid-1950s as a fighter-bomber hybrid. Equipped with low altitude bombing equipment and the ability to carry an atomic bomb, the F-86H showed potential but was phased out of service in 1957 as other fighters rapidly surpassed its performance capabilities. Our F-86H began its career at George Air Force Base in April 1955. It was then deployed to numerous locations including Toul-Rosieres Air Base, France, and New York and Massachusetts. Serving most of its career at Suffolk County Air Force Base, New York the aircraft is painted in the scheme of the 52nd Fighter Wing.
