Blackburn Skua & Roc - A list of pages on this site.
The Blackburn Skua was a fighter/dive bomber used by the British Fleet Air Arm during World War II. The Skua is often described as a slow, cumbersome aircraft that saw little action and was quickly relegated to a training role after the start of the Second World War. It may have been slow and ponderous, but it saw widespread action as both a fighter and dive bomber and its pilots fought many gallant actions against the Germans and Italians. It achieved remarkable results despite its poor performance and the small numbers produced.
