Earlier this year the Jet Aircraft Museum in London, Ontario, was awarded the opportunity to save a CF-101 Voodoo jet that is currently located in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia.
The retired Canadian Air Force jet represents an important time in Canada’s jet heritage and the Save Voodoo 006 project has been raising funds to save this unique aircraft, museum officials said.
Over the past few months $10,990 was raised through online donations. A museum member also has extended a $10,000 loan to the project, bringing the campaign close to its $25,000 goal.
The Save Voodoo 006 team has been working to line up specialized trucking, as well as a crane for disassembly, and are rounding up the rest of equipment needed for the project, museum officials noted.
