Watch Silent Wings - The American Glider Pilots of WWII
- 1 hr 53 min
This is a documentary movie about the use of gliders and the pilots who flew them during World War II. They were used throughout the war, including on D-Day, to help fight the Germans. Over 5,000 American pilots volunteered to fly cargo gliders. These planes were sent on the most critical missions of the war. Their job was to land men and supplies into battle, without making a sound. This documentary takes a look at the missions these brave pilots flew. Each mission was critical to the Allied forces, and each one carried the same result if it failed.
