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. 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.

On July 1, 1960, the 133rd Fighter Group of the Minnesota ANG was re-designated the 148th
Fighter Group and replaced their F-102 Delta Dagger with the McDonnell F-101 Voodoo. They
flew the Voodoo from 1971 until January 1976 when the unit role was changed. The 148th FG
became the 148th Tactical Reconnaissance Group and re-equipped with RF-4Cs from 1976 until
1983 and then the F-4D until 1990. 1990 saw the introduction of the F-16 Fighting Falcon and it
still is in use.
