X-Plane 10 Blackburn Skua v1.2. The Blackburn B-24 Skua was a carrier-based aircraft operated by the British Fleet Air Arm which combined the functions of both dive-bomber and fighter. It was designed in the mid-1930s and saw service in the early part of the Second World War. It took its name from the seabird. The aircraft presented to you here is a modification of Jacques Brault's Blackburn Skua for X-Plane 8 and 9. Thanks to Dataroots for the Blackburn Skua sound files, Ho-Hun for custom instruments and Scooter for the pilot figure. Version 1.2 adds animated tailhook. By Dominic Smith.
