    I was a Aircraft Instrument technician working primarily on the F 86 Sabre Jet. It was a formidable fighter jet against the Russian made Mig 15. When pilots wrote up problems with a particular instrument we generally pulled the instrument out and replaced it with a new one. The old one was sent to Japan for repair.

    Wow! Doesn't look anything like the instrumentation on my Dad's Piper Vagabond...
