Produced alongside the F-101B interceptor was the F-101F operational and conversion trainer. The 79 F-101Fs were equipped with dual controls, but carried the same armament as the F-101B and were fully combat-capable. Most of these F-101Fs were retrofitted with infrared sensors and improved fire-control systems as part of Project *Bold Journey*. The F-101F was externally identical to the F-101B, and the two aircraft could only be distinguished from each other by an examination of their serial numbers.
Dual-control F-101F aircraft were widespread throughout the F-101 interceptor fleet, but a sizeable proportion of them were concentrated in the training units with only a handfull being assigned to each operational F-101B interceptor unit. Reconnaissance Voodoo units were also assigned a few F-101Fs to assist with their conversion training.
Canada's air force received ten F-101F two-seat operational trainers in parallel with the acquisition of its 56 F-101B interceptors. These included four F-101F-116-MCs (59-393, 400, 407, and 437) and six F-101F-121-MCs (59-443, 449, 454, 460, 466, 472, and 478). In Canadian service, they were designated CF-101F.
In 1970-71, the surviving CF-101Fs from the initial batch delivered to Canada were returned to the USA and exchanged for ten new F-101F operational trainers under Operation *Peach Wings*. These ex-USAF Voodoos were from earlier production batches, but had been upgraded with infrared sensors and improved fire control systems as part of Project *Bold Journey*.
