In 1970 the USAF agreed to exchange 58 CF-101s and to supply Canada with 66 ex-USAF F-101s. One of these aircraft was s/n 57-0380 and became CF-101 s/n 101043. The aircraft spent most of its time with the 416 Lynx Squadron in Chatham, New Brunswick. In 1984 this aircraft was given a special paint scheme, "Lynx One" to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Canadian Air Force and the end of the Voodoo in Canada. The aircraft is on display at the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum, Halifax.

McDonnell CF-101B Voodoo

Designed to meed a USAAF requirement for a long-range turbojet powered fighter, the F-101 was first flown (as the XF-88 prototype) on October 20th, 1948. Its initial mission as bomber escort was modified during development to include that of all-weather interceptor, nuclear fighter-bomber and photo reconnaissance aircraft. Reconnaissance variants saw extensive use during the Vietnam war while interceptors remained in service with several Air National Guard units until 1982. Ultimately, the Voodoo's carreer was rather short-lived although it did help pave the way towards the highly successful F-4 Phantom II that replaced it.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-101 Voodoo is a large model in this scale and is constructed from diecast metal with plastic components used for replication of fine scale details such as the model's nose and engine exhausts. The short stubby solid metal wings are cleverly fitted to the fuselage with almost no visible seams and feature razor thin aerodynamic wing fences and crisp panel lines. The hinged canopy opens near vertical for easy placement of crew figures and viewing the highly detailed pad-printed front and rear instrument panels. The series covers fighter variants with a rotating weapons pallete under the forward fuselage and reconnaissance variants with transparent camera windows in the nose.
