You know that:

  • The CG-4 glider had to carry not only soldiers, but also various equipment, light guns or vehicles.
  • Its simple wooden construction allowed for quick and easy production - over 13,900 units were produced in total.
  • These gliders were designed to be easy to assemble and disassemble on the battlefield.
  • Glider models were also produced for training soldiers and pilots.
  • Since pilots could not choose very much where they landed, they often landed in rough terrain and difficult conditions.
  • The CG-4 was often towed behind C-47 Skytrain aircraft.
  • Some models were even fitted with auxiliary engines for extended range.
  • This model glider played a significant role in Operation Overlord, dropping troops behind enemy lines.
  • The CG-4 served not only in American service, but also in British service - there it was known as the Hadrian.
  • Some soldiers nicknamed the glider the "Flying Coffin" because of the high risk the pilots and crew faced during operations.

Major General William C. Lee about the CG-4 glider:
