30th Anniversary of the Voodoo’s Last Flight Celebration

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$5

On April 9, 1987, Voodoo #101006, made the world’s last Voodoo flight, flying from CFB Chatham to CFB Greenwood NS. In October 2013, #101006 was safely transported to the Jet Aircraft Museum where work is steadily progressing to restore the aircraft to static display status. On Sunday 9th April 2017 at the Jet Aircraft Museum (JAM), an event will be held between 13.00 and 17.00 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the last flight of the CF-101 Voodoo and the last flight of a Voodoo anywhere in the world. The event will attract a large audience and visitors are advised to arrive early. It is also hoped that the flight crew from the last flight will be able to attend and share their stories of that flight and of flying the ‘One-0-Wonder’. A unique painting has been commissioned by JAM and painted by retired Canadian Forces soldier, Peter Robichaud.
The painting, titled: “One Last Time” will show Voodoo #101006 taking off on its last flight with full afterburners alight. One hundred and one limited edition prints of the artwork have also been produced and will go on sale at the event. Edition numbers 006/101 and 101/101 will be auctioned on the day to help raise addition funds to continue the preservation work of the Voodoo at JAM.
Event highlights include: Unveiling of the original “One Last Time” painting A chance to meet people who flew the Voodoo Tours of the Jet Aircraft Museum and Voodoo #101006
Cost: $5 adults, children 12 and under free
