Without consulting other than my memory I was under the impression the F86 wing was "inspired" by the ME262's wing, since at the time the US had no swept wing experience. I think the sweep is the same, and other dimensions, such as chord and camber (except trailing edge sweep) were very similar. The ME262 itself may have had a NACA "inspired" theoretical shape. Of course, I could be wrong.
