    Hello, again aviation friends and fiends, I'm posting the flight manual for the F-86H Sabre. This model is notable for being the only member of the USAF F-86 series that wasn't powered by the GE J47 engine but rather the GE J73. Since the J73 was somewhat larger, the fuselage was enlarged by 14 inches and at the same time the dihedral on the horizontal stabilizer seen in the A, E, and F models was eliminated and a clamshell canopy installed instead of the sliding version seen on the earlier F-86's. Late model H Sabres had the six 50 caliber machine guns replaced by four 20mm cannons, making these one of only two versions of the Sabre so armed, the other was the F-86K, a radar-nosed version that saw only limited service with the USAF. Most were built under license by Fiat in Italy for assorted European air forces in NATO. In addition to a large array of conventional external stores, the H was also capable of carrying a single Mark 7 or Mark 12 nuclear weapon under the port wing. I apologize for the lack of performance data, however at the time this handbook was published it was still classified. View attachment 242669 View attachment 242670 View attachment 242671

    Thanks, Mike, hope you enjoy it. I redid the F-89 manual with pdfsam and it came out in three parts rather than eight, if you run into Sandokan, let him know. Have a good one!
