Aviation quiz # 4

Ok, I've found a new question, this one from the early years of aviation.

Question 4: The Balloon Factory (1889) was renamed HM Aircraft Factory in 1911, then the Royal Aircraft Factory in 1912. What was the next name change and in what year?

It became the Royal Aircraft Establishment in 1918, to disambiguate "RAF" from the newly formed Royal Air Force.

Gidday ZKARJ... yep that looks like a model answer. Well done :-)
