The Bristol F.2 was a biplane fighter designed in Britain and used during World War I. Despite having two seats, the robust construction and powerful engine allowed it to carry out aerial maneuvers on par with single-seat fighters, with its agility earning it a favorable reputation that kept it in service into the 1930s.
The F.2B first saw combat during the Battle of Arras in April 1917 - a month known as "Bloody April" where aircraft losses were extremely high. After this time pilots began to recognize the strengths of the F.2 and fly accordingly. 5,329 aircraft of this type were produced between 1916 and 1927.
