The Blackburn Aeroplane & Motor Co., of Leeds, built a mix of landplanes and seaplanes prototypes culminating in the Kangaroo bomber.[1]


  1. Nine Twin Blackburns, powered by two 100hp Gnome engines, were built, but their performance was so poor they saw little use.[2]
  2. These twin-engined prototypes saw little use, but the S.P. was developed into the Kangaroo.[2]
  3. Three torpedo-carrying Blackbird prototypes were completed in 1918, but the type did not enter production.[3]
