"Forgotten Turbos" might be a reasonable category as that would service as a useful reminder and list of those that were really neither jet nor prob (or, well, both jet and prop).

Thought about that, but decided that Turboprops have props, even if jet powered. So I'm going to stick with the three sites... for now.

Quick Update:

Broke the F-86 listings down by serial number and model. Should make it easier to navigate, especially on mobile.
North American F-86 Sabre

Image

Created the initial files for the Canadair CL-13 Sabre series

And last, but not least, created the initial files for the Aeritalia F-104S Starfighter (compiling data on other F-104 Starfighters now)
