Norman Lawrence Sirota D-Day Gliders

Friday, May 18, 2018, 5:00 PM - 12:00 AM

This exhibit detailing the exploits of the silent Gliders that were used in eight of the largest Allied assaults during World War Two, including the landing at Normandy just before D-Day. There is a real training glider hanging above the exhibit, and a reconstructed interior of the gliders that were used. These gliders carried troops, sometimes a jeep, and much needed supplies. Once landed on the ground, there was no way to take off. Norman Sirota was ill and couldn't participate in the landing on D-Day. This exhibit is in honor of the men in his glider team who landed at Normandy and never returned.

Cost: $10-$17; active military & family, free
