This "somebody" is the pilot in "Ad Astra" who witnessed Sartoris "roosting about five thousand feet above an old Ack.W." - i.e. Sartoris is circling in his plane above a comrade flying a less maneuverable aircraft "for bait" to attract the German aviator who had shot down his brother (414). Ack.W. was military slang for a British World War I plane made by Armstrong Whitworth.
