X-Plane 9 Blackburn Skua. The Blackburn B-24 Skua was a carrier-based aircraft operated by the British Fleet Air Arm which combined the functions of 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. Thanks to Dataroots for the sound files, Ho-hun for some custom instruments and to Scooter for the pilot figures. By Jacques Brault.
