What You Need To Know:

Episode 3 of MASTERS OF THE AIR on Apple TV+ follows the 100th Bomb Group during World War II as it bombs a ball bearing plant in Germany. Some characters die, but one airman gets help from the Resistance after he parachutes before his bomber explodes. In Episode 4, Major Egan is sent to London for some rest, where he woos a Polish war widow. Meanwhile, Major Cleven and his men get a second chance to bomb the submarine pens at Bremen, but the mission doesn’t go as planned.

Episodes 3 and 4 of MASTERS OF THE AIR have many intense, suspenseful moments. The air battles are harrowing. The whole production is superbly crafted and acted. MASTERS OF THE AIR has strong moral, Pro-American, patriotic values. The brave airmen are committed to defeating Hitler’s war machine, despite everything they must endure. Sadly, Episode 3 has lots of foul language, twice that of Episode 4. Also, Episode 4 has a steamy bedroom scene that gets explicit. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for Episodes 3 and 4 of MASTERS OF THE AIR.

More Detail:

Episodes 3 and 4 of MASTERS OF THE AIR on Apple TV+ follow the 100th Bomb Group during World War II as it bombs a ball bearing plant deep within Germany before flying to North Africa and as it attacks German submarine pens in Bremen again, with one of the group’s downed airmen trying to escape to Spain with help from the French Resistance. Episodes 3 and 4 of MASTERS OF THE AIR are superbly made, with strong Pro-American, patriotic values honoring duty, courage and sacrifice, but Episode 3 has lots of foul language and Episode 4 has a steamy bedroom scene when one of the pilots is given leave in London because of all his hard work.

Major Cleven and Major Egan lead a mission deep in Germany to destroy a ball bearing plant. The group is supposed to fly an escape route to North Africa, where a transport will pick them up to take the survivors back to England. Not everyone males it, however. Some men die and one airman, Sergeant William Quinn, parachutes to safety in Belgium just before his B-17 explodes.

The Resistance leaders on the ground give Quinn a choice. Surrender to the Germans as an airman and be sent to a prison camp. Or, sneak through the countryside to freedom in Spain. If he takes the second choice, however, the Germans will shoot him as a spy if they catch him.

In Episode 4, Egan is sent to London for some needed rest, where he woos a Polish war widow who fled the Germans when they invaded. They comfort each other. Meanwhile, Major Cleven and his men are given a second chance to bomb the submarine pens at Bremen, but the mission doesn’t go as planned.

Down on the ground, Sergeant Quinn and another downed airman take a train to Paris. Danger lurks everywhere for them.

Episodes 3 and 4 of MASTERS OF THE AIR have many intense, suspenseful moments. The battles in the air are harrowing, and the whole production is superbly crafted and acted.

MASTERS OF THE AIR has a strong moral, Pro-American, patriotic worldview The airmen are committed to defeating Hitler and his war machine, despite all the difficulties, trauma and sacrifice they must endure. At the same time, however, they make every effort to survive.

Sadly, Episode 3 has lots of foul language, twice as much as Episode 4. Also, Episode 4 has a steamy bedroom scene that gets briefly explicit. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for Episodes 3 and 4 of MASTERS OF THE AIR.
