MD F101 Voodoo
Back

McDonald-Douglas F-101 Voodoo. This graceful 2 seat mach-2 fighter served in a few airforces during the 1960's and 70's. It was also later used in some situations as a target drone for Surface-to-Air missile testing. It had 3 main models, 2 fighter types and a reconnaissance version. The fighter types were significant because they could carry the Genie unguided air-to-air nuclear tipped rocket, intended to break up Soviet bomber formations.
