V-1 flying bomb exhibited at Headcorn Aerodrome
Visitors to the Lashenden Air Memorial Museum at the weekend will have the chance to see a piloted German flying bomb which was developed, but never operationally deployed, during World War II.
There are only about six piloted V-1s in the world, and their targets were said to include Buckingham Palace.
The two-tonne aircraft has been restored for the museum, located at Headcorn Aerodrome, near Maidstone.
