Schweizer TG-2

The German deployment of troop-carrying gliders in the invasion of France impressed the U.S. Army and a crash-program was initiated to develop the capability.  The Schweizer SGS 2-8 civil sailplane was purchased as the TG-2 to train glider pilots.

After the war, TG-2ís were much sought after as they were light, rugged and all metal.
