This is the opening of a Fail article on the restoration of an aircraft…
150 V1 rockets were fitted with cockpits so they could be steered into targets before pilots attempted to bail out.
And this is the end…
The rocket is 28ft long, has a wingspan of 22ft and is fitted with an Argus 109-014 pulse jet engine.
The museum is due to take delivery of it later this week.
Epic face-palm! You spotted the cock-up yet?
The V-1 was a jet not rocket as the frankly self-contradictory final line states. Who writes this drivel? Why do they employ such numpties? Why does basic factual accuracy on matters of aerospace not matter (and the Mail are far from alone here). And is it just aerospace where they just casually display complete pignorance and lack of basic fact-checking? I know a lot about ‘planes and stuff, not so much about other things. Should I be worried?
That’s rhetorical by the way.
