Hello Oose, I check your site every couple of days, very nice to see what comes up.
It’s an F-86 though, not an F-100.
Didn’t check if there were any other comments, I’m sorry if it has been commented likewise before me.

The airplane in this photograph, “NACA 149”, was the first of two North American Aviation YF-86D Sabre all-weather interceptor service test aircraft. (The production F-86D is frequently called the “Sabre Dog”.) 577 made its first flight 22 December 1949 at Edwards AFB with NAA test pilot George S. Welch in the cockpit. The airplane was used for aerodynamic stability testing by NACA/NASA from 26 June 1952–15 February 1950. . . . No identity on the goose.
