Our aircraft is Canadair CL-13 Sabre Mk 6 (sn S6-1675), very last specimen of the 655 produced by Canadair, powered by an ORENDA 14 jet engine of 7400 lbs of thrust, the most powerful and last of the ORENDA engine lineage. The Sabre MK6 is known to be the best of all 16 types produced among the 10.000 one's, showing the best high altitude and low speed performance due to reintroduced wing leading edge slats.
