This is former California Air National Guard F-86A 49-1217 at the Planes of Fame Museum marked as 49-1318 that was lost in Korea in January 1952. Later the aircraft was painted with it's original serial and displayed at the museum's Valle, AZ location. Traded in 2000 for a Meteor F.4 from the Imperial War Museum, the Sabre instead went to Vulcan Warbirds (associated with the Flying Heritage collection) in 2001.
