Restoration of the F-101 Voodoo Fighter Jet that sits on the top of the hill next to the James J. Eagan Center has been completed. The historic plane was in need of restoration after vandals damaged it in May. The vandals set the plane on fire and painted graffiti on it.
The plane was originally commissioned in 1960. It was dedicated in Florissant in 2004. The plane was built by McDonnell Douglas.
This jet was built during the ear of FAST and cool looking jets. The name says a lot about what cool people were part of this project. Todays jets have lame names like spirit, lightning II, hornet, etc.
I worked on the Sky Hawk, Corsair II, and Intruder
