Canadair Sabre 6 ordered as 23682 by the RCAF but supplied to South Africa as 363. Bought by the Yanks museum and displayed in false USAF markings using its c/n 1472 as serial and forming the basis for its Buzz No. FU-472.
Impressive engine but I wish they had put it somewhere else. This aircraft was built as a CL-13 Sabre Mk.4 and served in the RAF, first as XB904, later as XB915. It was transferred to the USAF in Oct 1956 and redesignated to F-86E(M) before being shipped to Italy under MDAP. Flew coded as displayed with the 2°Stormo, 13°Gruppo Autonomo. The Stormo badge is on the tail.
Fiat license-built 221 F-86K's, the AMI's first all-weather fighter. This is one was delivered to the Armée the l'Air and returned to Italy in January 1962. It served until late 1970, eventually marked as displayed. Was under restoration during 2004-2007.
