The aircraft (nicknamed the "Big Ack") was designed by Dutch. As a replacement for the Royal Aircraft Factory B. And the Armstrong Whitworth F. It was designed as a sturdier aircraft with a larger fuselage. It was a rival design to the Royal Aircraft Factory R. The first aircraft flew in May 1916. And was delivered to the Royal Flying Corps. Although it was easier to fly than the R. 8, and was sturdier, its performance was even more pedestrian, and it shared the inherent stability of the Royal Aircraft Factory. Nonetheless, a total of 1,650 were built, and the type served alongside the R. 8 until the end of the war, at which point 694 F.

8s remained on RAF charge. Late production examples were better streamlined - the original crude undercarriage. Being replaced with tidier units (as in the illustration). The type was unusual in having dual controls, enabling the observer to control the aircraft in the event of the pilot becoming incapacitated by enemy action. 8 served with several squadrons on operations in France.

And for home defence, proving more popular in service than its better known contemporary, the R. The first squadron was 35 Squadron. 8 was principally used for the corps reconnaissance. Role, but was also used for light bombing. Being capable of carrying up to six 40 lb phosphorus smoke bombs, up to four 65 lb bombs or two 112 lb bombs on underwing racks. Were won by pilots of F. 8s; one by Second Lieutenant. And the second by Captain. 8 was scheduled to be replaced in the corps reconnaissance role by a version of the Bristol Fighter.

Unfortunately the engine was unsatisfactory, and this version of the Bristol never saw service. 8 was quickly discarded with the end of the war - the last squadron, No. Being disbanded at Kirec in Greece on 18 September.
