Inscription.

In memory of the world's first swept-wing, supersonic, operational jet fighter aircraft -- the F-86 SABRE".

Legendary in duty as the world's frontline fighter during the Korean War, the F-86 and its pilots created a legacy of combat performance that stands high in the history of fighter aviation.

We, the pilots who flew her, dedicate this memorial to a great fighter plane and to our deeply loved comrades who sacrificed their lives flying the F-86 SABRE for our country.
