F-86D/K/L by Ray Wagner
Air Force Legends Number 22
The second book in the Air Force Legends series is the North American F-86D/K/L "Sabre Dog". The importance of this single seat all-weather bomber/interceptor has been always overshadowed by the Korean War vintage F-86A/E/F series of day fighters. Production of F-86D's alone accounted for 2,506 aircraft. Although un-glamorous compared to its day fighter brother, the "Dog" was responsible for several world speed records. The F-86D/K.L will be covered in two volumes; this, the first, will cover its design, testing, and structures. The second volume will cover squadron service and markings, both foreign and domestic.
