Between 1970 and 1972, fifty-six of Canada’s CF-101 Voodoos were sent back to the USAF to be replaced by sixty-six Voodoos with lower airtime. Most of these aircraft were scrapped, but twenty-two were converted to the RF-101B reconnaissance variant. The modifications consisted of removing most of the rear cockpit controls, removing the armament and fire control systems in the old nose and replacing them with special photography and video cameras in a new modified nose. The weapons bay was also emptied and filled with more cameras. Some aircraft received an enclosed in-flight refueling probe in front of the cockpit as well as an air-refueling receptacle behind the rear cockpit. When the modifications were completed they were sent to the Nevada ANG 192nd TRS in Reno, Nevada. These RF-101Bs were replaced by RF-4Cs in 1975.Opening canopy

The McDonnell F-101 Voodoo made its first flight in September of 1954 with the first production F-101A making its first operational flight in May 1957. In September 1957 the F-101C became operational followed by the F-101B in January 1959. When production ended McDonnell had built 785 Voodoos, 480 of them were the two-seat all-weather interceptor F-101Bs. The RF-101 was the world’s first supersonic photo-reconnaissance aircraft. The only major foreign operator of the Voodoo was the Royal Canadian Air Force that acquired 56 CF-101B and 10 CF-101F
