Inscription. The Royal Canadian Air Forces 409th Fighter Squadron based at Comox B.C. began replacing their worn CF-100s with CF-101s in mid 1961. While assigned to the 25th NORAD Region, the 409th FS "Nighthawks" commitment in the defense of the Pacific Northwest spanned 30 years until the unit's last CF-101 alert on 30 June 1984. In its last days with the 409th, CF-101F S/N 101022 participated in history's last Voodoo formation, a nine ship, from CFB Comox to CFB Cold Lake on 6 July 1984.
