An Illustrated History of McDonnell's Heavyweight Fighter
Easley. Emerging from the Second World War as an escort for the Convair B-36 bomber, the McDonnell Model 36 "Voodoo" took its first flights in 1948 and was subsequently recast as the deadly F-101A strategic fighter. Aided by recently declassified documents, this volume examines that fighter's nearly 40-years of service, filling roles as a nuclear strike aircraft, a recon platform, and a reliable high-performance interceptor. 248 pages, 333 color and B&W photographs, 8½"x 11", hardcover.
