Royal Air Force
RNAS Kingsnorth was a First World War Royal Navy air station for seaplanes and airships, mainly operating as an experimental and training station, but also providing anti-submarine patrols. A number of experimental and prototype blimps were designed and constructed there.
It was located at the south eastern coast of the Isle of Grain in Kent.
In July 1914 the Royal Navy reformed its air branch, naming it the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS), and took over the base and its development and training functions.
