Military: USAF F101 Voodoo

Service Saturday (a few hours early as I will be traveling on Saturday).

My Dad was a mechanic in the Air Force.  The plane he attended to was the F101B Voodoo.  This McDonnell Aircraft was a supersonic jet fighter.  The first one took its first flight on 29 Sep 1954 and was then introduced into the Air Force fleet around 1972.  The Voodoo was upgraded from a bomber escort to a nuclear-armed fighter bomber for Tactical Air Command.

I am working on a request to the Air Force to see if there is any way possible to find the actual plane that Dad was responsible for.  If you have any suggestions on how I can find this out, I would be grateful to hear your advice.

I found a couple interesting videos on the plane:
