But early in 1959, the Canadian government cancelled the development of the CF105, (the reason why is hotly debated even today), and another aircraft had to be found to replace it.

The McDonnell F-101B Voodoo had been developed for the United States Air Force to escort B-29 bombers during the Korean War. 2 RCAF VooDoo aircrafts.

The F-101A flew on 29 September 1956 for the first time. The reconnaissance version was developed and named the F-101B. It flew in March 1957.

The CF-101B remained in service in an all-weather role until 1984.
