North American F-86A/E/F/H Sabre - Ethiopia

F-86F
Serial: 258 (ONU)
Unit: ONU - UN Air Force in Congo

Between autumn 1961 and October 1962 the Imperial Ethiopian Air Force operated a flight of F-86Fs, drawn either from the 3rd Fighter Intercept Squadron (FIS) or 5th Fighter Bomber Squadron (FBS)as a part of the UN Air Force in Congo. Together with Swedish Saab J-29 Tunnans and Indian Canberras, the Ethiopian fighters operated against Katangese forces, flying several attacks against the airfields in Jadotville and Kolwesi. During these operations one F-86F was lost to an unknown reason, on 14 October 1962. The remaining four Sabres were returned to Ethiopia eleven days later.
