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.

In 1961 Canada began to receive the first of fifty six F-101Bs purchased from the U.S.. One
of the aircraft was U.S. 59-0402, 170402 in Canada. Between 1970 and 1972 Canada
traded in the original aircraft for sixty six newer F-101Bs. From September 1971 until
January 1972 twenty of the returned aircraft were converted to RF-101Bs. In 1971 59-0402
was retired and converted and returned to service as an RF-101B. In 1973 59-0402 went to
the Nevada ANG 192nd TRS and June 1976 went to AMARC and then sold in 1980 for
