Canadair Sabre (Canada)
   During 1949 Canadair began quantity production of the Sabre single-seat jet fighter for the RCAF' under licence from North American Aviation Inc. The prototype first flew on 9 August 1950 as an F-86A or Sabre Mk 1. Initial production aircraft were F-86F's or Sabre Mk 2s, powered ey General Electric J47-GE-13 engines. Following the Mk 4, a modified Mk 2, the Mk 6 entered production with an Avro Orenda 11 engine, rated at 32.36 kp (7,275 lb st).
CL-13 Sabre Mk 2, оснащенный двигателем J47, был первой модификацией Sabre в канадских ВВС. В Канаде он поступил на вооружение частей ПВО, а в Европе Sabre были распределены по четырем истребительным крыльям в Марвиле и Гростенкуине во Франции, а также в Баден-Золлингене и Цвай-брюккене в Западной Германии. Этот самолет служил в 434-й эскадрилье "Bluenose", входившей в состав 3-го авиакрыла в Цвайбрюккене.
Этот Canadair Sabre F.Mk 2 находился на вооружении 92-й эскадрильи в 1955 году.

"Сейбры" для Люфтваффе. Первый из 75 самолетов Canadair CL-13A Sabre Mk 5, принадлежавших ранее канадским ВВС, был передан Люфтваффе в январе 1957 года, а в декабре того же года самолеты были объявлены достигшими оперативной готовности. Начиная с 1959 года, три авиакрыла Люфтваффе получили 226 самолетов CL-13B Sabre Mk 6. Затем ВВС получили две эскадрильи самолетов F-86K, построенных "Fiat", они эксплуатировались до середины 1966 года. Последний Sabre Mk 6 списали в декабре 1966 года, но часть переоборудовали в буксировщики мишеней.

One of a series of superb colour photographs taken by RCAF CpI George Hardy not long after the formation of the Golden Hawks in the spring of 1959, taken from the open side door of an RCAF Canadair North Star. Interestingly, Fern recalled that he was initially allocated an RAF exchange officer as liaison between the team and Air Defence Command HQ.

In the summer of 1959, having seen an American magazine cover with the US Navy’s Blue Angels flying over Niagara Falls, Fern insisted on going one better by having the four-Sabre formation photographed by George Hardy and his cumbersome Speed Graphic 4x5, this time in a T-33, over the Falls - inverted with coloured smoke.

Being a member of the Golden Hawks led to some unusual duties, which in June 1959 included posing for publicity photographs on the port wing of a Sabre with Hollywood movie star and swimming champion Esther Williams at RCAF Station Uplands in Ottawa. Fern looks on bemused at far left.

FOLLOWING Peter R. Foster’s interest­ing article Elliniki Aeroporia in the January 1992 issue, readers may be interested in these pictures of the Royal Hellenic Air Force Canadair CL-13 Sabre 4 team, six of which gave a display of formation aerobatics at the 1963 Paris Salon Internationale. They were drawn from ten Sabres with the following serials: 278, 294, 347, 377, 382, 392, 395, 409, 448 and 452.

Sabre британских ВВС. Задержки с вводом в эксплуатацию Hawker Hunter и Supermarine Swift привели к тому, что Canadair Sabre в качестве временной меры попали в британские Королевские ВВС. Sabre был первым английским истребителем со стреловидным крылом, который поступил в 13 эскадрилий. Первый экземпляр был поставлен 8 декабря 1952 года, последний снят с эксплуатации в середине 1956-го, когда его заменил Hawker Hunter. На снимке самолеты Hunter и Sabre из 112-й эскадрильи со знаменитым рисунком "акулья пасть", ранее изображавшимся на истребителях P-40. Королевские ВВС имели смешанный парк из 460 Sabre модификаций Mark 2 и 4.

On the other hand, Larry Milberry's new book on the Sabre adequately covers such "odd" aircraft as the ex-Golden Hawks Mk 5 serial 23096, used as a chase 'plane by Boeing.
In September 1959 the Golden Hawks team was officially disbanded, and Fern was posted to the OTU Tactics Flight as an instructor, where he flew Sabre 5s, as seen here. The Hawks had proved so popular, however, that the team was re-formed for the 1960 season, Fern completing his second and final season as the team’s leader.

CANADA IN EUROPE. Recent photograph taken in Europe recently show part of Canada's air build-up for N.A.T.O. Canadair Sabre Mk. 5s in France. Note sailing-boat squadron badge. Sabre Mk. 5 differs from the Mk. 6 in having a 6,355 Ib.s.t. Orenda 10 while the latter has a 7,600 Ib.s.t. Orenda 14.
Final production version of the Canadair Sabre was the Mk 6, built for the RCAF, as illustrated, and for Germany, South Africa and Colombia.
