Masters of the Air Full Trailer – An AVGeek Reacts!

In this video, Boney deep-dives into the trailer for Apple TV+’s ‘Masters of the Air’, slated for release in January. Analyzing various scenes, dialogues, and stylistic choices, we look at various elements of the show, from lead characters and their possible story arcs to the visual and emotional impacts of certain moments. Boney also highlights areas of interest, including the inclusion of historical events, and shares optimism about the presence of the ‘Red Tails’, Tuskegee airmen. However, the host expresses concerns about the show’s CGI and pacing. Mixed with humour and unique insights, the video offers a detailed breakdown and assessment of one of the most anticipated shows.

Putting the Pilot Back in the Cockpit

we live in a listicle dominated world that becomes more binary by the day. Nuance now feels like a dirty word and when we look at things, we seem to rank them by default. When this comes to the equipment of the Second World War, the fetishisation of the machinery has begun to override the basic truth that these incredible machines were designed to kill and that they were operated by men little more than boys.
