The F-86 Sabre is the United States' first swept wing jet-fighter. Produced by North American Aviation it was used extensively against the Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed aerial dogfights during the Korean War (1950-1953). Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also highly rated in comparison with fighters of its generation. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and outdated by the end of the '50s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable. Aircraft continued to serve as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the 1990's.

The F-86 Sabre "MiG Mad Marine" was Maj. John Glenn's jet-fighter. John Herschel Glenn, Jr. was a U.S. Marine Corps pilot who flew with the U.S. Air Force's 51st Fighter Wing as an exchange pilot. He actually named his assigned aircraft "Lyn Annie Dave" for his wife and two kids but did not see much action. The flight crew surprised him with a new paint job, a big red M with letters trailing off it to read "Mig Mad Marine" to change his luck. He shot down three MiGs near the Yalu River in the last 2 weeks of the war.

After the Korean War John Glenn (Col. USMC Ret.) went on to be a test pilot, a NASA astronaut and a U.S. Senator.

The Postage Stamp F-86F Sabre "MiG Mad Marine" is a die cast metal 1/110 scale model featuring authentic paint scheme, pad printed markings and display stand.
