The Silent Wings Museum is located in Lubbock, Texas. It is the only museum in the world dedicated solely to preserving the history of the WWII glider program. Approximately 80% of the United States Army Air Forces glider pilots received their G-Wings at South Plains Army Air Field, which was located on the site of the current Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport. Exhibits focus on the training of the USAAF glider pilots, how gliders were used in support of airborne operations, and the particular history of the Allied glider program. Our restored CG-4A glider is the centerpiece of the Hangar Gallery while exhibits throughout the Silent Wings Museum illustrate other aspects of the history of the American WWII Military Glider Program.
