F-86K of the German Luftwaffe

These photos were taken in 2003 at the "Luftwaffenmuseum" in Berlin, Germany. They show a pretty worn F-86K of the German Luftwaffe. The F-86K was the NATO version of the F-86D Dog Sabre and served with the airforces of France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and Western Germany. It didn't have a rocket armament like the F-86D but only four nose mounted guns. Note: The badge on the fin is not the unit's badge of this plane but the sign of the airforce workshop which had restored this plane. Unfortunately the engine is missing.
