DID YOU KNOW?

The CF-101 Voodoo

It was the aircraft that was given to Canada after the fall of the Arrow and it fought the Cold War armed with nuclear weapons (though that was never officially confirmed at the time). The Voodoo was located at Air Force bases from Comox, B.C. to Bagotville, Que.
It was the main strike fighter against any incoming Soviet attack and carried the Genie nuclear missile before carrying the Falcon missile as its main armament. Flying at Mach 1.72, (1,825 km/h or 1,134 mph) at 10,500 m (35,000 ft) the Voodoo kept the peace.
