Help identifying this aircraft (?), where?

Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:18 pm

I came across this video - https://rumble.com/v336bu-badis-snow-dance.html - and noticed what seems to be a derelict aircraft in the background, see screenshot below:

First question, is it an aircraft at all? Might be playground equipment but it looks too sophisticated for such equipment.

If yes, what kind of aircraft is it and where has it been stored? I started this thread in the military section since I thought I am familiar with commercial aircraft and it doesn’t look like any commercial aircraft I know. The tail section reminds me a little bit of an A7 Corsair but not the rest.

Any help would be highly appreciated.
Best regards

F-86 Sabre, I would say.

Have a look at this position in one of the online mapping programs 41.018852N 21.329374E one of them is a F-86E the other a F-86D

What?! Just a tiny F86? Due to the invisible/missing cockpit I somehow thought it’s something bigger, something in the size of a IL14 or similar ;-)

Anyhow, thank you all for your replies…. I am still puzzled how you, Zeke and Retiredweasel, were able to identify the location from the picture I posted above…
