The

DOODLEBUG

Project

Some time ago, we found out that the 'warhead on the museum's V1 was mounted in the wrong way. So we decided the re-mount it and in doing so, discovered that the interior is nearly complete (apart of the explosives off course!!). Jean Dillen - who has a good knowledge of the German occupation of Antwerp and its airfield in particular - has joined our ranks and will lead this project.

The idea is to restore the flying bomb, clean out the interior and open it up to the public.

The information supplied at the museum will be updated with our findings.
