That's great! My friend George "Pete" Buckley, who was a glider pilot, cut one off a glider when he heard the war was over.

 

You have a great piece of history and really gives tribute to all those glider pilots. Thanks for sharing, especially on the D-Day Anniversary!

That is very nice. Something I'd love to own.

 

My tribute to the Glider Pilots is happening here in Normandy right now.

As each year, I cross Hiesville many times, so beautiful little town with a lot of histories.
A missing plate of our control panel comes from a field of Hiesville.

In an aerial photo of ncap.org.uk, I found the Waco from which comes this plate.
