The Jet Aircraft Museum is excited to announce that it has been award the opportunity to save, transport and restore a CF-101 Voodoo, one of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s most important Cold War fighters.
During the Cold War, Canadian CF-101 Voodoo fighter jets were piloted, crewed and maintained by dedicated members of our Canadian Forces while protecting Canada from the threat of invasion for more than 26 years. The Jet Aircraft Museum, based in London, Ont., now has the opportunity to repay those who dedicated their lives to our freedom by saving the last Voodoo to fly with the Canadian Armed Forces, Voodoo #006, by transporting it back to London from its current location in Cornwallis, N.S. It is the museum’s mission to bring back the boom to the Voodoo and restore this endangered airframe to its past glory, educating visitors about the history of the Voodoo and the Cold War, along with other jets like the T-33 SilverStar, MiG-15 and de Havilland Vampire already operated by the museum.
The Jet Aircraft Museum plans to send a team of members out to Cornwallis this coming summer or fall to dismantle, load and transport the Voodoo, along with another T-33 that the Cornwallis Military Museum has donated to the museum as well, back to the their new homes in London. They can’t do it without your help, though!
