Reflections on 2017 | F-86 Sabre Taxiing

Reflections on 2017 | F-86 Sabre Taxiing  After the weather improved at the 2nd Annual TBM Avenger Gathering held at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru, IL, the F-86 Sabre got a chance to fly.  A few years ago, I briefly shared the pattern with an F-86.  Of course, it was moving much faster than I was.  Still, I felt honored to share a piece of sky with such an iconic airplane.  This annual TBM gathering has quickly become a poplar event.  To see the entire story with all seven images, go to Reflections on 2017 | a 7 Image Story.

F-86 Sabre Taxiing

F-86 Sabre Taxiing  After the weather improved at the 2nd Annual TBM Avenger Gathering held last Saturday at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru, IL, the F-86 Sabre got a chance to fly.  What a beautiful airplane; both in flight and on the ground.  A few years ago, I briefly shared the pattern with an F-86.  Of course, it was moving much faster than I was.  Still, I felt honored to share a piece of sky with such an iconic airplane.  Hope it comes back next year!
