Since arriving to McChord in
1984, CF-101F 101022 has been an important symbol of the cooperation
between the United States and Canada for the Air Defense of North
America. Years of sun, rain, and wind has taken their toll on the finish
of the proud Interceptor. During the last weeks of March the McChord
Museum took the first steps in a restoration process that will return
the Voodoo to its previous glory.
Members of the 62d Maintenance
Squadron removed the Voodoo from its landing gear stands using aircraft
airbags to lift the VooDoo, and gently set the aircraft on the ground. A week
later the sight of the CF-101 "stopped traffic" as she was
towed down the streets of McChord and placed in front of the Museums
restoration Hangar awaiting the completion of the F-102A Delta Dagger,
scheduled for late April early May.
