Restored World War II glider unveiled

Volunteers who toiled for several years to create a World War II glider out of restored parts unveiled it in Eagan on Wednesday. During the war, Minnesota was the second-largest manufacturer of the aircraft, which were used to quietly move men and materials into enemy territory. On Thursday, the glider will be moved to the Fagen Fighters World War II Museum in Granite Falls.
