The Canadair Sabre by Larry Milberry
QR Code Link to This Post
If you are interested in the F-86 Sabre, this is a book you MUST have in your library (372 pages and hundreds of pictures, many in colour). Larry Milberry has researched all 1815 Sabres produced by the Canadair Company of Montreal. He has also collected stories from hundreds of former RCAF pilots and ground-crew who flew or worked on the Canadian Sabre. The book has a definite historical tilt but is at its best when it shows the personal perspective of the people who lived with it, and sometimes slept in it, from day to day. As with any book dealing with the military, some of the stories are tragic but most show the human side of operating the premier air defence fighter in Europe from 1951 to its replacement by the F-104 in 1963. Appendixes are provided which cover technical advances, 3-views, all known crashes where the Sabre was written off and a listing of all 1815 aircraft by RCAF serial, Canadair number, Squadron number, operator (Colombia, South Africa, Germany, Britain, Yugoslavia, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Hunduras and Pakistan), and, where known, disposition. The Canadair Mark 6 Sabre was the best Sabre variant ever and this is definitely THE book on the Canadian Sabre.
