The Lashenden Air Warfare Museum is one of the longest established aviation museums in the country, having been formed in 1970. The museum collection was started by members of the Maidstone branch of Royal Air Forces Association in the late 1960’s. The museum itself came into being when the airfield owner, Mr Freeman, offered the Maidstone branch of the Royal Air Forces Association a building for use as a museum in early 1970. The museum opened to the public Easter 1970 taking on the name of Lashenden Air Warfare Museum (Lashenden being the wartime name of the airfield). The museum’s first aircraft arrived just before Easter 1970, this being the very rare Fieseler Fi103R-4 Reichenberg piloted V1 flying bomb.

The following is a look at some of the questions and the percentage of people who got them right and wrong.
