January 1, 2013

Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series
HA3706
McDonnell F-101B Voodoo
148 FG, Minnesota Air National Guard, Duluth, MN 1970s

October 2012 Release

Production Limited 700 Units

On 1 July 1960, the Minnesota Air National Guard's 148th FIG assumed a 24-hour alert status in support of the Air Defense Command mission in Duluth with the F-89J Scorpion all weather interceptor.  

In 1967, the F-102A Delta Dagger replaced the aging F-89J. The F-101B Voodoo came aboard in April 1971 and remained until January 1976 when the unit again saw re-designation, becoming the 148th Tactical Reconnaissance Group with RF-4C Phantom II reconnaissance aircraft. The new mission entailed all weather, high or low, day or night, selective reconnaissance.  In October 1983, the mission changed again and found the 148th back in air defense and being renamed the 148th Fighter Interceptor Group. The return to alert and air defense brought with it the F-4D Phantom II, tactical fighter, with most of the aircraft being veterans of the Vietnam War.

Another Hobby Master F-101 and a worthy addition to the Collection.
