HOK designed the interior renovations of the old Lubbock Airport passenger terminal as well as a new “hangar” area for displaying restored Waco CG-4A gliders and other large exhibits.
The museum documents the history of gliders in warfare. The exhibits include a timeline of the history of the gliders, their campaigns during World War II, vignettes of glider construction and pilot training, web link reminiscences, weapons and uniforms, and a landing tableau.
The adaptive reuse also an auditorium, offices, gift shop and an exhibit fabrication shop.
A new 8,600-square-foot glass-enclosed gallery overlooking the airport’s runways houses two vintage World War II gliders.
