    that I don't have a more recent video. The restoration was essentially completed last summer. The restorers had a big open house at Villaume Lumber in Eagan, MN with a lot of exhibits (pictures, documents, films) showing the history of gliders built here in MN for WWII. At that time, the glider was shortly to be moved to a museum in Granite Falls.

    Unfortunately, when Dale Johnson (seen in the video) was taking the glider to the museum, one of the horizontal stabilizers fell off the trailer onto the freeway and was completely destroyed. It's now being rebuilt.
