     This aircraft was in fact designed by the General Aircraft Company. The Blackburn company bought them out and built these aircraft at their Brough plant in East Yorkshire. The design allowed it to taxi backwards, essential when using jungle airstrips. This link explains more. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackburn_Beverley
