Voodoo


Tam mentions .79-caliber Pontiac revolvers this morning, so I have to go check 'em out, whereupon I find they were used on the F-101 Voodoo, which I haven't heard mentioned in a coon's age. Being a witch doctor and all, I felt I probably should know something about this good looking airplane.
  • Supersonic - 1100 MPH
  • Active from 1954 to 1984
  • 1500 mile range
  • Vietnam War before being replaced by the F-4 Phantom
  • Cuban Missile Crisis:
The U-2 gets top billing whenever we talk about spy planes, but as you can see the Voodoo was in there doing some of the grunt work.
