No, friend, NOT a Gulfstream V. Try a North American f-86F.

Best pic of the week....bar none.

Takes me back to the early 1960's.

It has been the greatest privilege of my career to have help worked on the F-86F Sabrejet known as Beauteous Butch II. My heart is so full seeing Doug Matthews fly her after a long restoration.

Tagged incorrectly but great composition! Beautiful shot of the acclaimed F-86F Sabrejet.

Doug Sheehy: Fantastic video. Thanks.
Love the contrast between the jet and the launch.
Peter DeMoore
Great effort to get the shot. Youtube video was excellent. The aircraft must have been right on the edge of the no-fly zone. Very cool. Thanks.

What a shot, BEAUTIFUL

Loved the F-86, read about them when I was in Jr. High, during the Korean war!

What an excellent photograph.
A very long time ago I worked for Atlas Aircraft Corporation in South Africa and we tried to get these wonderful aircraft flying again.
I cannot remember how many were in storage but we had one ready to test fly. We did but on closer inspection before proceeding it was discovered that fatigue was a big problem and that stopped the project.
I was great to see one fly again and has remained with me.
They are a beautiful looking aircraft. Mel J.

Peter-Doug Matthews is the pilot and his crew restored this Sabrejet and the photo was done by Mike Killian.
William Owens

Excellent picture at the right time!!! When was it?????????
Funny gulfstream...!!
Hayden Schnick
Awesome shot, but the aircraft type isn't a GLF5.

It is so comical that there are no proofreaders at Flight Aware. This is NOT the first mistaken aircraft you've shown. Wonder what you will label an alien spacecraft if ones does show up?

When did Gulfstream manufacture the F-86?
