Museum Curator Trevor Matthews 'You basically lined the sight up on Buckingham Palace, and boom'.
An incredibly-rare Kamikaze-version of Adolf Hitler's deadly V1 terror weapon is about to go on display at a British museum 47 years after it was saved from destruction.
The piloted 'Doodlebug' was effectively a one ton suicide bomb designed to strike at specific targets like Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament.
Unlike the extremely inaccurate unmanned version, these V1's were designed to be dropped from Heinkel bombers and then piloted directly onto their targets, but fortunately although 175 were made they were never put to use.
One of the handfull that exist today belongs to the Lashenden Aviation Museum in Kent which have spent £40,000 having it restored and are about to put it on display in a new purpose built hangar.
