The CA-27 or Avon Sabre was a redesign of the F-86 by The Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation of Australia. The fuselage was re-designed to take the Rolls Royce Avon engine and the 6 x 50cal machine guns were replaced by 2 x 30mm ADEN Cannons. All images thanks to Daniel Cox (copyright) are of CA-27 Mk.32 Sabre; CA27-83, A94-983, VH-IPN. The ejector seat has been replaced a Martin Baker (much safer) rather than the in service NA seat. Fitting of this seat required a small plate on the cockpit floor and a mod for canopy opening in order to raise the canopy above the seat. This aircraft is owned by the Royal Australian Air Force Museum and is operated by the Temora Aviation Museum following their restoration of it to flying condition, the museum is located in New South Wales, Australia and welcomes visitors from all over the world. The Museum is (except for 4 days) open all year round and provides twice monthly Aircraft Showcase flying events plus a biennial airshow called Warbirds Downunder.
