This aircraft, Bristol F2B (FII), Serial No. A-7107, was flown by Lt. Ralph Luxmore Curtis and 2nd Lt. Desmond P.F. Uniacke and several others while serving with RFC No. 48 Squadron in July 1917. Curtis scored at least 2 victories in this aircraft, including an Albatros D.V over Vity with Uniacke as observer on 7 July 1917. Curtis and Uniacke reached a total of 15 and 13 victories respectively, but were later brought down by Oblt. Hermann Göring of Jasta 27 on 21 September 1917 while flying a different Bristol (Curtis dying of his wounds and Uniacke becoming a POW). Other Bristol Aces, including Brian Edmund Baker (12 victories) and Laurence Wilfred Allen (10 victories), also scored victories in this aircraft while flying for No. 48 Squadron.

Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.
