V-1 flying bomb
The V-1 flying bomb (also called the Buzz Bomb or Doodlebug) was a Nazi weapon. It was a flying bomb that used a jet engine to make it travel at 350 mph. The people who controlled it pointed it at London, UK and Antwerp in Belgium. V-1s destroyed nearly as many houses as the Blitz did but killed fewer: 22,892 people died after being attacked by them. The Allies tried to stop these attacks by bombing the places they were launched from and by flying very fast planes close to them and nudging them off course using their wings.
