This aircraft, Bristol F2B (F.II), Serial No. A-7288, was flown by Capt. Andrew E. McKeever and 2nd Lt. Leslie A. Powell while serving with No. 11 Squadron at Fére-en-Tardenois in November 1917. The white wheel covers and the white '7' on the fuselage sides and top wing indicate that this aircraft belonged to No. 11 Squadron's "A" Flight. McKeever scored his last victories in this aircraft, being credited with downing 4 Albatros D.Vs south of Cambrai on 30 November 1917, bringing his official tally to 31 (and his gunner Powell's total to 19). McKeever was the top-scoring Bristol Ace of the Great War.
