SILENT WINGS MUSEUM

 

THE OFFICIAL MUSEUM OF THE NATIONAL WORLD WAR II GLIDER PILOTS ASSOCIATION

        After many years at its original home at the Municipal Airport of Terrell, Texas, the Silent Wings Museum has moved to Lubbock, Texas.  The museum officially re-opened on October 19, 2002.  The National World War II Glider Pilots Association held its annual reunion at the museum to coincide with the opening ceremonies.  Lubbock, Texas is the home of the South Plains Army Air Field, one of the locations where WWII Glider Pilots trained.

 

        Joe Hays is the manager of the museum.  He and his staff are actively looking for combat glider artifacts, memorabilia from World War II, and anything else that would be appropriate for the museum.  They also wish to develop a network of contacts with people interested in the history of this unique phase of airborne warfare.  You may get in contact with Mr. Hays and his staff at the below addresses.

 

        Check the Silent Wings Museum website for more information on the progress of the Silent Wings Museum.
