Bristol Aircraft

Bristol F2.b FighterThe forerunner British and Colonial Aeroplane Company, Ltd was founded in 1910 by Sir George White at Filton near Bristol and was unique in its incorporation as business venture whearas contemporary compannies were set up by enthusiasts with little financial backing or business organisation.

Bristol's first successful design was the Bristol Boxkite maufactured in June 1910. In July 2010, the Company formed a flying school at Brooklands and Larkhill.

In 1914 Frank Barnwell became chief designer and one of Barnwell's first designs, the Bristol Scout, was one of the first fighter aircraft to enter British service. Later on came the mass-produced two-seat Bristol Fighter, successful as both a light bomber and a scout which became one of the backbones of the Royal Flying Corps (RFC).

The sounds of both the Bristol Boxkite and Bristol Fighter can be found on this web site.

Bristol F2.b FighterThe Bristol F.2 Fighter "Brisfit", is a two-seat Rolls-Royce Falcon powered biplane fighter and scout aircraft of the First World War. Although being a two-seater, the F.2B proved to be an agile aircraft that was able to hold its own against opposing single-seat fighters. The F.2B's solid design ensured that it remained in military service into the 1930s and surplus aircraft were popular in civil aviation.

The Bristol fighter's basic design stemmed from design studies by Frank Barnwell or an aircraft in the same class as the R.E.8 and the F.K.8. The eventual design became reality with the availability of the 190 hp (142 kW) Rolls-Royce Falcon I inline engine, around which the aircraft was modelled.
