This aircraft, Bristol F2B (F.II), Serial No. A-7127, was flown by 2nd Lts. Colin G.O. MacAndrew and A.M. West while serving with No. 11 Squadron at Fere-en-Tardenois in the Summer of 1917. The blue wheel covers and the white 'U' on the fuselage sides and top wing indicate that this aircraft belonged to No. 11 Squadron's "C" Flight. MacAndrew was credited with 5 victories while flying this aircraft with No. 11 Squadron that summer (2 with West and 3 with other observers), but was killed in October 1917 while flying DH-4 bombers after being transferred to No. 57 Squadron. A-7127 was later shot down by flak and photographed in German hands.
