Texas Voodoo

An F-101 Voodoo recently found a new home outside the Defense Language Institute English Language Center at Lackland AFB, Tex. The aircraft was placed on static display outside DLIELC’s Sebille Hall, named after Maj. Louis Sebille, commander of the 67th Fighter-Bomber Squadron during the Korean War. The Voodoo was added to his squadron’s tactical reconnaissance unit after Sebille was killed. “This aircraft bears a tie to airmanship and our heritage. It speaks to the staff and students of the mission of the Air Force—to ‘Fly, Fight, and Win,’ no matter what the setting,” said Col. Patrick Vetter, vice commander of Lackland’s 37th Training Wing. The supersonic fighter-bomber last flew with the Texas Air National Guard’s 147th Fighter Wing (now the 147th Reconnaissance Wing) in Houston. After its retirement, the F-101 was used as a training aid, according to a Lackland release.
