The McDonnell F-101B Voodoo on display at the Valiant Air Command Museum, Titusville, Florida was affectionately called the "One-oh-Wonder" and known moreso early on for its many record-setting achievements in the early years of use. The twin-engine fighter-bomber was a design that nearly wasn't thanks to the development of more potent high-flying long range bombers. Fortunately for the type, the need for escort fighters was as apparent as ever during the Korean War and interest in the Voodoo was brought back to the forefront. With the eventually involvement of Tactical Air Command, the Voodoo would find itself a home in US ranks and become one of the more successful American aircraft designs of the Cold War, inevitably seeing action in the Vietnam War.
The F-101 Voodoo was truly a testament to the changing face of warfare brought about by the jet age. As a bridge design between the early 1950's and the early 1970's, Voodoos operated with distinction in both war and peacetime, setting a few speed and endurance records along the way in the process. No doubt the Voodoo design had a direct influence on the magnificent F-4 Phantom as these physical elements can clearly be seen between the two types of aircraft. In any regard, both aircraft proved their worth in more ways than can or will ever be documented.
