1. F-101F Voodoo Marker
Inscription. Designed as a penetrator and long-range escort fighter, the F-101 Voodoo first appeared in 1954. The design was based on the earlier prototype XF-88, and no actual prototype F-101 was built. Later versions were used as long-range interceptors and reconnaissance aircraft. Built by McDonnell Aircraft of St. Louis, Missouri, and was delivered to the Air Force on September 26, 1958. This aircraft was immediately modified to the JF-101B configuration and used for testing by McDonnell. The aircraft on display served with several active units and was again modified first to F-101F and later TF-101F configurations. Its last duty assignment was with the Air National Guard at Selfridge AFB in Michigan. It was retired in May 1972. Its markings currently represent an F-101B which was assigned to the 4440th Air Defense Group at Langley AFB in Virginia.
