This aircraft, Bristol F2B (F.II), Serial No. A-7131, was flown by an unknown crew while serving with No. 11 Squadron during Winter 1917-1918. The white wheel covers and the white '5' on the fuselage sides and top wing indicate that this aircraft belonged to No. 11 Squadron's "A" Flight. While previously assigned to No. 48 Squadron, this aircraft was flown by Lt. Hugh William Elliott and 2nd Lt. J.W. Ferguson and downed Elliott's 3rd victory (out of an eventual 5) - an Albatros D.V over Slype on 21 July 1917.
