McDonnell F-101 Voodoo je dvomotorno nadzvočno lovsko letalo ameriškega proizvajalca McDonnell Aircraft. Uporabljale so ga Ameriške (USAF) in Kanadske letalske sile (RCAF). Sprva je bil zasnovan kot spremljevalec bombnikov, pozneje se je uporabljal kot jedrsko oboroženi lovec-bombnik in tudi kot prestreznik. Je en izmed lovcev serije Century.

Izvidniška verzija RF-101 je igrala zelo pomembno vlogo v Kubanski krizi, veliko se je uporabljala tudi med Vietnamsko vojno.[1]Prestrezniško verzijo je Air National Guard uporabljala do leta 1982. Kanadčani pa do 1980ih, ko ga je nasledil CF-18 Hornet

Voodoo je bi lahko označili kot deloma uspešno letalo, je bil pa pomemben "evolucijski" korak, ki je vodil do razvoja F-4 Phantom II.
