Model: unknown

Name: Sabre Fury

Type: Jet interceptor


Status: Service test

Country: United States of America

Service: U.S. Air Force

Designation: F-107B


The North American F-107B Sabre Fury was a prototype derived from the YF-107 Ultra Sabre and offered to both the U.S. Air Force and Navy as a fast interceptor. The air intakes were lateral instead of dorsal, the rear fuselage was redesigned and the wings and empennage were new. Although it failed to be procured in quantity, the Sabre Fury paved the way for the Navy's Vigilante attack/recce aircraft, which drew heavily on the design...


The basic image was of a YF-107A prototype. The wing, empennage and bottom/rear fuselage are from another North American combat jet aircraft of that time, the Vigilante...

  • F-107B: very beautiful, thanks! (Tophe)
  • Beautiful aircraft, looks like a Dassault Mirage F1! You did a great job...I knew the original model... but I have understood is that the pilots rejected the idea of flying in an aircraft that had the jet engine air intake just above their heads...and you fix that error!!! (Roberdigiorge)
  • I thought I saw Vigilante in me, it actually looks better then the original F-107. One day I am going to have try fooling around with Photos too. Good Stuff as always. (Mimikios)
