Someone for an answer, as this immaculate-one presumably was the last-of-type European-registered, confirm?
Thanx

I do not have an answer to your question, but this definitely was not the last European-registered Sabre!

86001 of the Swedish Air Force was still seen active on ADS-B a couple of weeks ago.
:wink:

HB-VCN was cancelled on 13 June 2014, exported to N329Z which was cancelled on 23 March 2018 and wfu at Perryville (MO) I believe.

Oeps, shouldn't have forgotten about thisone (although wouldn't have thought of thisone still being active to be honest) & didn't have mij mil-hat on. However Swiss was the last civil then
