This one rivals the infamous Spitfire low level buzz job. Too cool.

AirshowBuzz is an awesome site. It's fairly new, but has many people "in the industry" on it, and behind it. The Sabre pilot in that video is one of the founders of that site, Ed Shipley, who many here may also have seen flying the Mustang as part of the Horsemen formation team.

I watched as this F-86 almost bought the farm last year @ heart of Dixie on Maxwell AFB.

One of his rear landing gears refused to come down. He had to bring her in on the nose gear and one rear gear. Pretty much bellyed her in.
In talking to Grand Paw about it he says the G's had a bad tendancy to do that do to the hydrolics stcking if they weren't maintained properly. Said it was a bad problem in Korea, even if they were maintained they some times will stick due to extream conditions. (ie excessive heat/cold)
