I think they are somewhat historic. I would really appreciate it if anyone could ID these. I tried to ID them via the numbers. It seems these FA- and FS- numbers are either non standard or French. I don't think they are French.

The cockpit does look like that of the F86 Sabre.

Try typing F86 Sabre into google and have a peek.

Ok, now I'm a little confused, to which aircraft are you referring to. I see three different nose profiles for the F86 Sabre. Or are they all variants of the same aircraft?

Top one is not a F-86, or a Super Sabre, looks more like a F-84 Thunderjet. Rest are, F-80, Shooting Stars, maybe T-33 Shooting Stars.

The top two images are definitely not the F-86. Completely wrong for that as the F-86 has neither a circular fuselage section nor a circular intake.

However I can tell what it is. Its a Republic F-84 Thunderjet, the early version with the straight wing.

edit, Cobbz, the rest are T-33's not P-80's (just because you got in first
)

edit again; phew its hard to keep up with this editing game.

Thanks everyone, exactly why I posted them here. I gave it a go a few years ago when I took the pics, but given my limited knowledge to begin with I had no luck.
Thanks again
