Episode summary:

During WWII, 6,000 young Americans volunteered to fly large unarmed gliders carrying American soldiers into the darkness of battle. For these glider pilots every mission was do or die. It was their task to repeatedly risk their lives landing the men and tools of war deep within enemy territory, often in complete darkness. Thousands of lives were saved and battles won because of their efforts. Through rare archival footage and photographs, SILENT WINGS puts the viewer right at the center of the action in the dangerous world of the American glider pilots.
