The museum was formed in 1970 with the aim of preserving the aviation heritage of Kent, with particular emphasis on World War II. Also to promote and develop an aviation awareness in the general public, raising money for RAF and other associated charities. Situated on Lashenden Aerodrome the only wartime Advanced Landing Ground still in use in the country, the Lashenden Air Warfare Museum is one of the leading "volunteer" museums in the UK. Museum exhibits range from a 1911 Farman biplane propeller, through to items from the Falklands and both Gulf Wars.
