The North American F-86 Sabre was manufactured from 1949 – 1956 and was America’s first
swept-wing fighter. As well as being built in the U.S. variants were built in Canada and Australia
arrived to take on the other swept-wing aircraft of the conflict, the MiG-15 Fagot. The Americans
claim they shot down 792 MiGs while only losing 78 Sabres, a 10:1 victory ratio which is greatly
disputed.
During the Korean War Captain Harold E. Fischer Jr. flew an F-86F with the 39th FIS/51st FIW at
Suwon, Korea. Fischer had been piloting an F-84 but quickly adjusted to the newer aircraft and
accumulated ten MiG victories making him a double Ace. On April 7, 1953 just as he scored his
eleventh victory Fischer was either shot down or ingested debris from the 11th MiG that brought
his aircraft down. He was captured and released two years later. He went on to fly 200 missions
in Vietnam.
