Selection and training for the Army's Glider Pilot Regiment was both vigorous and thoroughly demanding. GPR veterans recall their experience of training to be members of one of the British Army's new elite regiments. Once they had survived the initial toughening up, it was on to elementary fixed-wing flying with the RAF and then on to gliding in a variety of aircraft including the Horsa Glider. Using an exact full-size replica of the Horsa Glider built at RAF Shawbury, the team gain an insight into the construction, size and flying characteristics of this iconic airplane. Veterans explain how the aircraft handled and the controls they used in their five mile glide from six thousand feet. The operations of the Glider Pilot Regiment are covered from the first small scale attempt to destroy the German Heavy Water plant in Norway through to the near disastrous first major commitment at night to the invasion of Sicily in July 1943.
