For the British aircommand it became in 1916 obvious that a replacement for the slow and vulnerable BE2 series of aircraft was badly needed. Bristol at this time had designed a 2 seater airplane of girder box design. To overcome the restricted forward view for the pilot the upper wing was placed only 1 foot above the fuselage. The pilot's line of sight was obstructed only by the mere airfoil section thus rendering good visibility forward/upward and forward downward.

The necessary distance between wing planes was obtained by moving the lower wing downward under the fuselage. The first production aircraft were designated F2A but when put in service as a recon-naissance aircraft, the old tactics were used and the plane became easy prey for the opponents. 

A revised model F2B fighter/recon-naissance with improved 275 hp. Rolls-Royce Falcon engine and fighter tactics applied, became a tre-mendous success.

The airplane is packed in a strong 3-ply, custom made carton. The individual parts are packed in sealed plastic bags and then wrapped in bubble plastic to ensure safe transport.
