Col. Francis Gabreski, commander of the 25th FS/51st FIW and was assigned North American F-86E 51-2740 named "Gabby". Occasionally pilots flew whichever aircraft was available and in October 1951 he was flying F-86E 51-2746 FU-746 "Lady Frances/Michigan Center" when he shot down one of the 6.5 MiG-15s he accumulated during his tour. FU-746 was the aircraft assigned to Major William Westcott who scored several of his 5 victories in FU-746. On November 21, 1952 51-2746 flown by 2nd Lt P.D. Blakeley was shot down but pilot was rescued.

North American F-86E Sabre

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a day-fighter/escort fighter/dive-bomber, the F-86 was first flown on October 1st, 1947. The Sabre's swept-wing "flying tail" configuration and a hydraulic flight-control system were some of its many firsts in technology and design that have now become standard for jet-powered aircraft. Armed with six 50 caliber machine guns, the F-86 saw extensive action in the Korean War, where it was often pitted against the MiG-15. The Sabre pilot had to be in visual contact and within gun range of the enemy in order to attempt a shoot-down, thereby making this aircraft the last true "dogfighter" in Air Force inventory.
