After August’s Russian Mig-15, September features another plane from the same era.
This picture of a F-86 Sabre was taken in 2008 during the 2008 Top Gun event in Lakeland Florida.
As part of the presentation, the plane dropped the auxiliary tanks which can be still seen attached to the plane in our picture.

Have a great month and don’t forget to send us your pictures if you feel they should be featured as one of our wallpapers.
With nearly the size of a JetCat P-120SX but with 142N @ 125,000 rpm, the new JetCat P-140RX turbine will hit the shelves in September/October 2011. The P-140RX will replace the P-120SX which will be phased out by JetCat once the P-140RX is released.
Featuring JetCat’s new fully digital “bus” electronic control system, the new generation of RX series JetCat turbines reduce the wiring and tubing to a minimum, making installation easier.
The temperature sensor is installed internally, but still can be replaced if necessary. The valves are fully integrated inside the turbine front housing, so only a single tube connection from the pump to the turbine is necessary. Additionally the electrical connection from the turbine to the ECU, also involves only a single PowerBus lead.
The new light weight and small V10.0 JetCat ECU (26g and 2/3rds size) require only the receiver (1 or 2 channel operation) and the fuel pump to be connected. All of the latest options e.g. ECU V6.0 GSU connection, GPS and Airspeed sensor input/output, Smoke control will still be available.
The power supply is provided by a 3S 2100mAh LiFePO4 battery. This not only powers the ECU and fuel pump, but also all optional accessories connected to the bus system, such as the JetCat Smoke Pump and or LCU (lighting control Unit).
Alternatively, the V10.0 ECU can be supplied for operation with a 2S/3S Li-po or 6-8 cell Ni chemistry battery.
The V10.0 ECU also has a built-in, precision air pressure and temperature sensor which intelligently adjusts to the current environmental conditions. This also eliminates the setting of the pump start voltage. The engine starts and runs on kerosene.
The weight of the JetCat is P140RX-1580g. The maximum thrust is 142N @ 125,000 rpm. With a diameter of 112mm and an overall length of 320mm the size matches closely the P120SX size.
