Flight Systems Inc. converted a number of Canadair Sabres into drones from the Spring of 1975 and used them to support U.S. Army air defense programs at White Sands Missile Range. Although Canadian-built they were called QF-86Es by the contractor. N74170 was the first one converted and survived until 29 Aug 1980, when it was shot down by a Sgt. York anti-aircraft gun system. It's the former RCAF 23320.
