Operation Market garden 18th September 1944.

American freight landing CG-4A WACO glider after landing on the field near the Dutch city of San (Son) damaged the nose, but a jeep named "Ruth" airframe and crew on board survived. Next to the glider are three local residents who helped them unload.


The Waco CG-4A was the most widely used United States troop/cargo military glider of World War II. It was designated the CG-4A by the United States Army Air Forces, and named the Hadrian in British military service.
