Lashenden Air Warfare Museum is an aviation museum at Lashenden (Headcorn) Airfield in Kent in southeast England.


A Fieseler Fi 103R Reichenberg, a piloted version of the V-1 flying bomb, has been undergoing a 5-year restoration and is now in store awaiting the completion of a new display hall in late 2014. The Focke-Achgelis Fa 330A-1 gyro-kite was used by U-boats for reconnaissance. A Pickett-Hamilton Fort, a pop-up pillbox from WWII, was recently excavated from RAF Manston and restored. The museum has a large collection of aircraft components and memorabilia.
