Flying Bomb Hits London

This page explains the story of the V2 bombs over London in WWII and how the Poisson distribution is used to tell if the rockets were able to aim at a target or not. Links are given to a website where students can observe 2 simulators shooting rockets. They can do an exercise to determine which of the simulators is capable of aiming at a target.
