Nothing on the F 101 ? The RF101 held time to climb and Sun Run Coast to coast speed record for a few years The B model equipped with missiles became Canada's first line Defense Fighter for a surprisingly long time.
Designed as a long-range "penetration" fighter (bomber escort). Beat out the competing Lockheed F-90, but then the Air Force cancelled their requirement for a fighter of this category before the F-88 could enter production.
Bob Moore, those pictures aren't hard to find. Do a Web search for "XF-88B".
