Description: A CF-101B Voodoo fighter intercepts a Soviet Tupolev Tu-95 'Bear' bomber used for reconnaissance in Canadian air space. This type of incident was frequent during the Cold War. Made in the U.S., the Voodoo was the Canadian Forces' main fighter from 1961 to 1984. With a top speed of only 1,220 kts (1,963 km/h), the Voodoo was definitely inferior to the CF-105 Avro Arrow.
