Learn the little-told story of America’s wartime glider pilots in Lubbock, Texas

The history of America’s fighter pilots and bomber pilots during the Second World War is familiar to many, but the story of its glider pilots is not, which is why the Silent Wings museum is so vital. These men transported airborne troops behind enemy lines on the silent wings of gliders in some of the war’s most important battles, including D-Day in Normandy and the invasion of Sicily. Many of these pilots trained in Lubbock which is why the museum was located here. In addition to the many weapons, uniforms and photos on display, the museum has an original Waco CG-4 glider that you can see and touch, one of only seven left in the world.
