406th Air Expeditionary Wing
The 406TH AIR EXPEDITIONARY WING (406 AEW) is a provisional unit assigned to the United States Air Forces in Europe . The wing was reactivated in early 2003 as a provisional wing to be used as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), based in Turkey . When Turkey refused to allow its territory to be used as part of the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, It seems likely the 406 AEW was inactivated shortly afterward. Sometime afterward, it was possibly reactivated at RAFO Thumrait , Oman, possibly with KC-135 tankers. Possibly later moved to Camp Bastion , Afghanistan. Its current status is undetermined.

F-86 Sabre
The NORTH AMERICAN F-86 SABRE, sometimes called the SABREJET, is a transonic jet fighter aircraft . Produced by North American Aviation
North American Aviation
, the Sabre is best known as the United States' first swept wing fighter that could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War
Korean War
(1950–1953). Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the '50s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the last active operational examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994. Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan, and Italy
