Bristol F2B

A highly stable plane, the Brisfit was well loved by RFC pilots who valued a reliably controllable mount.





Strong and Stable

Able to hold it's own against many of Germany's advanced, smaller planes, the Brisfit was a successful addition to the RFC's arsenal.

Two's a team

In addition to aerial reconnaissance photography and navigation, the second seat occupant was a tailgunner. With a Vickers machine gun located in the front synced to the propeller of the plane allowing the pilot to initiate a dogfight, the Bristol was unique in that it also had a Lewis gun mounted in the back. This allowed the gunner to guard the plane's six.

Long Service

The Brisfit was such a modern and successful plane that it remained in service well into the 1930's.
