Six Canadian-built Sabre 6 were delivered to Colombia on 8 June 1956. They served till 1967, when the last two survivors were retired, four others had crashed. The Sabre was the first jet fighter operated by the Colombian air force. Both survivors still exist today, this FAC2023 and FAC2024 which is at Cali.
