MILBERRY, Larry. The Canadair Sabre. (Toronto) : CANAV Books, (1986). Pp. 372. Fully illustrated. Triple column. 4to, blue cloth, silver titles to spine. Larry Milberry (b. 1943, Haileybury, Ontario). A detailed history of the classic jet fighter, the F-86 Sabre, used by the RCAF. "This is the most detailed book ever about the famous F-86 Sabre. Designed by North American Aviation in California, the Sabre is the classic jet fighter of all time, the plane that made history by taking control of the skies over Korea and drubbing the MiG-15. Chosen by the RCAF to fulfill its day-fighter needs, most of the natty little Canadian Sabres would be stationed in Europe with No.1 Air Division. [...] The Canadair Sabre contains the largest number of Sabre photos ever published in one book. As well, there are drawings, a full production list, various specs and statistics, and even drinking songs, poems and cartoons. This book will surely bring waves of nostalgia to anyone who was involved with air force life in the 1950s and will delight anyone with an interest in some of the most exciting years in military history." - from the dj.
