At 25,000 feet, in the very midst of its combat operating envelope (and at lift coefficients less than its maximum attainable lift) the Sabre’s pitch-up onset was so severe that g forces once momentarily “blacked out” the test pilot. ” The same group found the later slat-less “6-3” F-86F (socalled because its wing extended forward 6 inches at the root and 3 inches at the tip, a modification made by North American based on Korean war experience) had “moderate” pitch-up tendencies. ”48 Worse swept wing problems plagued the Sabre’s great adversary, the Soviet MiG-15.

Eugene Root and former Focke-Wulf aerodynamicist Hans Multhopp. After an inspection trip to Messerschmitt in August 1945, Root wrote “a tailless design suffers a disadvantage of small allowable center of gravity travel. . Although equally good flying qualities can be obtained in either [tailless or conventional] case, the tailless design is considered more dangerous at very high speeds.
