Taktische Luftwaffengruppe "Richthofen", formerly known as Jagdgeschwader 71 (JG 71) Richthofen is a Fighter Group of the German Air Force. As West Germany's first operational jet fighter unit, JG 71 was formed in June 1959 and equipped with 50 Canadair Sabre Mk.6s. The squardon was commanded by none other than the highest-scoring fighter pilot of all time, Erich Hartmann, who flew the Canadair Sabre and reputedly claimed it to be his favorite fighter plane design.

Canadair Sabre Mk 6

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a day-fighter/escort fighter/dive-bomber, the F-86 was first flown on October 1st, 1947. The Sabre's swept-wing "flying tail" configuration and a hydraulic flight-control system were some of its many firsts in technology and design that have now become standard for jet-powered aircraft. Armed with six 50 caliber machine guns, the F-86 saw extensive action in the Korean War, where it was often pitted against the MiG-15. The Sabre pilot had to be in visual contact and within gun range of the enemy in order to attempt a shoot-down, thereby making this aircraft the last true "dogfighter" in Air Force inventory.
