I know little about gliders. This is the place to learn about them. The exhibits take the visitor from the earliest to the latest and everything in between. To cover the museum thoroughly would take a couple of hours. As I was pressed for time and knew so little I was in/out in less than an hour - but, and this is important, I left knowing that I MUST return and spend some time learning about this fascinating sport. One of the few things I know about gliders is their use in WWII. The museum has a WACO / CG-41 which could carry a dozen infantrymen or a jeep or light artillery piece. The museum very cleverly has their 1942 example on the floor (without wings) and open for entry so visitors can try to visualize what it must have been like to fly into combat: so small, so closely packed together as the craft hurtles through the darkness for a landing, perhaps at Normandy behind enemy lines. I'm returning to the museum for sure.
