Today in Aviation History: F-86 sets a world speed record!

Today in 1951, Colonel Fred J Ascani set a 635.686mph world speed record in an F-86F Sabre. He received the Mackay Trophy for flight, an award established in 1911 for the most meritorious flight of the year by an Air Force person, persons or organization.

One of our favorite F-86s is this $149.99 electric ducted fan from E-flite. It has a firberglass fuselage, comes with three sets of decals and is a speed demon with the recommended power system.
