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.
The Assault Glider Trust Collection has now left RAF Shawbury
The C-47 Dakota has joined the RAF Transport Command Memorial at North Weald airfield, the Tiger Moth is now part of the Army Historic Aircraft Flight and the Airspeed Horsa and CG-4A Waco (Hadrian) gliders are in storage at RAF Cosford awaiting a decision regarding their future. Related artefacts have been donated to the Wartime Aircraft Recovery Group at Sleap airfield in Shropshire.
Whilst the Assault Gliders are in storage at RAF Cosford, it is NOT possible to arrange visits to view them due to access restrictions and Health & Safety considerations within the storage hangar.
