F-101 Voodoo Model
The McDonnell F-101 Voodoo was a supersonic jet fighter that served both the United States Air Force (USAF) and the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). Originally designed as a long-range bomber escort by McDonnell Aircraft Corporation for the Strategic Air Command (SAC) of the USAF, it was later developed as a nuclear-armed fighter-bomber for the Tactical Air Command (TAC) and as a photo reconnaissance aircraft.
With its impressive speed capabilities, the F-101A set numerous world records for jet-powered aircraft, including the fastest airspeed of 1,207.6 mph, which it achieved on December 12, 1957. It served in the reconnaissance role until 1979.
Due to delays in the 1954 interceptor project, the B model of the Voodoo was designed to fill the interim interceptor role. This required extensive modifications, including the addition of a large radar, a second crew member, and a weapons bay with a rotating door that could conceal its missiles or rockets until they were ready to be fired. The F-101B entered service with the USAF Air Defense Command in 1959 and the RCAF in 1961, and later served with the USAF Air National Guard until 1982. Canadian examples remained in service until 1984.
