RAF Farnborough [entry point]
The site was first associated with flying in 1905 with use by the Army Balloon Factory. During World War One the factory, by then known as the Royal Aircraft Factory, produced many aircraft for the Royal Flying Corps. When the Royal Air Force was formed in 1918 the factory was renamed the Royal Aircraft Establishment which engaged in aircraft development, research and experimental work until 1988. The site is still used for defence research.Refinements:
