The Bristol Fighter was an interesting departure from the standard single seat fighter design. A two-seat machine armed with both fixed and flexible machine guns, the Bristol Fighter or Brisfit as it was more affectionately known was fast, maneuverable and well suited to offensive operations.

A leading exponent of the Bristol Fighter was the Canadian ace, Major A.E. McKeever who accounted for most of his 30 victories with the type.
I need your help...
Visit the newest edition to the site, the Aircraft Serials Database. The database contains over 1000 pages and close 20,000 serial numbers. I could never come up with pictures and information for even a fraction of the aircraft. This is where I am looking for help. If you have log book entries or photographs of Canadian Air Force aircraft please use the form on the Aircraft Serials page and send us whatever information you may have about individual aircraft, this information will then be incorporated into the database for others to benefit from.
