That's EXACTLY how it was in my list until recently. In a streak of cautiousness I decided to question this and removed the B-54 allocation for these two... I shouldn't have. Thanks a lot!robunos said:so I would hazard a guess that the Y.A.7 and Y.A.8 retained the B-54 number.
Interesting info, thanksSchneiderman said:OK, so this thread has been dead for many years so I guess there is not a lot of interest in Blackburn, but a word of caution - the project list in Jackson's Putnam volume is far from complete and has errors.
I visited the Blackburn archive last week with a request to see any flying boat projects between the Nile and B20. The volunteers there did a quick search of the catalogue, not a deep search, and had a few files available for me to view. I only had two hours but in that time the files and drawings I saw were almost entirely previously unknown designs missing from Jackson's list. So, should you be researching Blackburn it looks like there is a great deal just waiting to be uncovered in the archive, a nice project for anyone who is able to make a few visits. The archive is held by BAe Systems at the former Blackburn factory at Brough, near Hull
