Considering its unique and futuristic design, it’s surprising there aren’t more models available of the North American F-107A “Ultra Sabre.”
As the Battle of Britain raged, Reichsmarchall Hermann Göring reportedly asked Luftwaffe ace Adolf Galland if there was anything he needed to make the Nazi campaign go more smoothly. Major Galland is said to have responded, “Give me a squadron of Spitfires.”
Even though he died in 1937, long before the summer of 1940, aircraft designer R.J. Mitchell is often described as a hero of the Battle of Britain. Indeed, his Supermarine Spitfire is considered a veritable “saviour” of the country.
