sound barrier[edit]

The text claims it to be the 1st fighter to break the sound barrier, in 1951. However, according to that article, the barrier was broken by two previous fighter jets, Bell X-1 in '47 (not a fighter), and North American F-86 Sabre in '48 (a fighter jet), so I would remove this claim.

The F-86 could only break the sound barrier in a dive, not in level flight. - BilCat (talk) 07:15, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Are the dimensions inverted?[edit]

Is it just me, or the length of this plane seems much bigger than its wingspan, opposed to what the article states. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 177.32.247.157 (talk) 07:13, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
