Summary

Summary

This volume (the second in a new series) illustrates all the users of the F-86F, including the South African Air Force's No.2 Squadron which flew with the 18th FBW, in contemporary wartime colour. These aircraft were some of the most colourful F-86s ever to see action, and the author has used his extensive contact base to accumulate one of the largest private collections of Korean colour material in the world. Accompanying the photos are detailed captions, quotes from pilots in action and a full appendices listing of the various units that served in Korea, plus specifications/cutaways of the aircraft flown.
