Simming The North American F-86 Sabre
Because this was a top fighter jet of its era, its best simulations would naturally be in combat theaters. Anything that simulates combat within the realm of FSX would be realistic, especially in Korea and Vietnam. It also saw action in the Taiwan Strait Crisis of 1958 and in the Indo-Pakistani Wars of 1965 and 1971. With some 50 of them privately owned, air shows would certainly be realistic simulations. Videos of such are available on YouTube. Cross-country flights from air show to air show would be realistic at subsonic speeds.

Milviz develops military and civilian addon aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator®. Here are a few examples of its many products: T-38A Jet Trainer and Baron B-55, I reviewed its F-15E Strike Eagle in May 2012.
Milviz has done an excellent job of rendering this historic aircraft in appearance and performance. Animations are appropriate, and extras features are useful bonuses. The manuals are helpful toward maximizing the simulation experience. Milviz's manual is especially well done. Anything about this jet that's not found in the Milviz manual is surely in the actual pilot manual.
