In the summer of 2000, veterans of the Midland Branch of the Glider Pilot Regimental Association decided that an appropriate memorial to airborne forces would be a complete Airspeed Horsa assault glider. This site follows the construction of this unique piece of aviation history. Please note that all visits to the project are by appointment only.
The Assault Glider Trust Airspeed Horsa and Waco CG-4A are due to move to their new home at the RAF Museum Cosford in the spring of 2014. If you wish to see all the aircraft together before the move commences, December 2013 and January 2014 will be the last opportunity to visit RAF Shawbury. It has not yet been decided where the Dakota and Tiger Moth will be displayed, nor is it known when the Horsa and Waco will be on public display at Cosford, so book a visit to Shawbury now to see this unique collection and to meet the volunteers before the move.
