The Flying Razorback Flashback: The RF-101 Voodoo

The F-101 lineage included several versions: low-altitude fighter-bomber, photo reconnaissance, two-seat interceptor and transition trainer. To accelerate production, no prototypes were built. The first Voodoo, an F-101A fighter version, made its initial flight on Sept. 29, 1954. Development of the unarmed RF-101, the world's first supersonic photo-reconnaissance aircraft, began in 1956. Pictured is the RF-101 Voodoo. The 188th flew this air frame from September 1970 until June 1972. (Courtesy photo)
