Turning into Wind - Blacknburn Skua Original
Charles J. Thompson Blackburn Skua HMS Ark Royal Original Oil Painting
Similar to the RAF’s Vickers Wellesley and Fairey Battle, the Skua was a quantum leap in terms of capability but was to be found seriously wanting by the time war came in 1939. First flown from Brough in 1937, the aircraft became the first British carrier-borne aircraft to be equipped with retractable undercarriage, flaps and a variable pitch propeller.
