The F-101B Voodoo "World Champs 65" holds a special place in the annals of aviation history. This particular aircraft belonged to the 62nd Fighter-Interceptor Squadron (FIS) of the United States Air Force and was stationed at K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base in 1965. During this period, the Cold War was at its height, and the 62nd FIS played a pivotal role in safeguarding the airspace over North America. While the F-101B Voodoo didn't see combat in the traditional sense, it was an integral part of America's defense strategy during the Cold War. Its primary mission was to intercept and deter potential threats, including Soviet bombers and reconnaissance aircraft, which occasionally approached North American airspace. The "World Champs 65" designation commemorates the 62nd FIS's exceptional performance and readiness during that year. This 1:72 scale model allows you to own a piece of this Cold War history. Whether you're a collector, aviation enthusiast, or someone with an appreciation for the brave men and women who stood guard during tense times, this model is a testament to the aircraft and personnel who helped maintain peace through strength.
