Fischer had been piloting an F-84 but quickly adjusted to the newer aircraft and accumulated ten MiG victories, making him a double Ace. On April 7, 1953 just as he scored his eleventh victory Fischer was either shot down or ingested debris from the 11th MiG that brought his aircraft down. He was captured and released two years later. He went on to fly 200 missions in Vietnam.Opening canopy

The F-86 Sabre was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. First flown in 1947, the F-86 entered service with the US Air Force in 1949. The Sabre is best known for its role in the Korean War, where it was pitted against the Soviet built MiG-15. In addition to its use in Korea, the F-86 Sabre also served in various stateside and overseas roles throughout the early part of the Cold War. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter with a total production, of all variants, of 9,860.
