Photo Comment

Rescued from a scrap yard in 1970, Ben Hall rebuilt former USAF 48-178 using parts from another F-86A and a lot of man-hours. Flying in the UK as G-SABR for over twenty years, the oldest jet still flying returned to the USA in 2014. It was finally able to make an appearance at the EAA Air Adventure in 2017.
