The North American F-86 Sabre, sometimes called the Sabrejet, is a transonic jet fighter. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the United States' first swept wing fighter that could counter the similarly-winged Soviet Mig-15 in high-speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War (1950–1953). Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras.

This paint scheme represents the F-86E Sabre of the 51st Fighter Intercept Wing as flown by Lt. Jim Thompson. This is one of the most recognizable paints of the Korean War. He painted this iconic symbol after shooting down a Mig-15 that had a dragon on the side.
