The McDonnell F-101 Voodoo (nicknamed One-oh-Wonder") first flew in September 1954
with the first production F-101A making its first operational flight in May 1957. In September
1957 the F-101C became operational followed by the F-101B in January 1959. When
production ended 807 Voodoos had been created, 480 of them were the two-seat all-
weather interceptor F-101Bs. The RF-101 reconnaissance version was the world’s first
supersonic photo-recon aircraft. The only major foreign operator of the Voodoo was the
Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) that acquired 56 CF-101B and 10 CF-101F.


McDonnell F-101B c/n 631 serial 58-0259 was built in 1958 at their St. Louis Missouri
facility. 58-0259 was one of 401 F-101Bs produced between 1957 and 1961. The base was
used to train interceptor pilots for the Air Defense Command duties. Since the base was so
close to Cuba that during and after the Cuban Missile Crisis F-101s and F-102s were on
constant alert ready to intercept any unknown aircraft. The last F-101 Voodoo in U.S.
service was retired on September 21, 1982.
