A recent visit to the Assault Glider Trust based at RAF Shawbury was the inspiration for this video. They are building an Airspeed Assault Horsa Glider from scratch, unfortunately it will never take to the air.

Please note:

I would like to point out that the undercarriage would be jettisoned on operations. The wheels were only used for take off, and when landing on training flights.
