F-101A Voodoo

The F-101A was a single-seat fighter powered by two Pratt and Whitney engines. A triangular-shaped inlet with elliptical lips was located in each wing root, and supplied air to each engine. The NACA High-Speed Flight Station conducted research on inlet-flow distortion and total pressure recovery at the engine compressor face on the F-101A and two other fighter type aircraft.
