In the YouTube analyize video posted by McGonigle, Thank you McGonigle, the video creator also mention the Red Tails not belonging because like I said before, they flew out of Italy and won't be escorting bombers of the 8th Air Force..

I knew the Red Tails don't belong in this series and I mention that in December 2022,

just an excuse to be inclusive and to have a Black lady direct 2 episodes

Here I posted info why Tuskegee Airmen shouldn't be in the series

Here's some more woke craziness for you NFB.

There is ZERO historical evidence that Hannibal was black. In fact, Carthage was settled by descendants of the Phoenicians who were from the Eastern Mediterranean area.

Isn’t there a scene in the trailer of the one pilot looking out over the desert? The 8th performed some shuttle missions to North Africa, so if we see any red tails I hope that is the reason.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

@ Panzer, Re Hannibal. It's Antoine Fuqua. He likes to rock the boat.

He's also an overrated director with an over-inflated view of himself.

It's well established that modern Lebanese people's DNA is mostly (something like 90%) Phoenician. Lebanese are lighter skinned than most Arab people.
This is how they look:

New trailer out. Still looking forward to this, although I my spider-senses are giving me an ever so slight sense of unease about this. I hope I am wrong.

Thanks for posting this. Overall I am quite looking forward to watching this series and I'm fairly certain I won't be disappointed. Having said that, there are two things I noticed in this trailer that bug me a bit:

1. The same old tired Hollywood cliche that all Germans during WWII were monsters who ate babies for breakfast seems to be at play in this series.

2. I really hope the romantic relationship aspect isn't overly-done (ie too syrupy and sentimental).

Again, I really want to see how they will sneak the Tuskegee Airmen in. I have respect for the Tuskegee Airmen and all they accomplish and contribute to the Allied Air War effort and victory but unless there is some real intelligent script without any devices and cliches, they don't belong in the history of the USAAF 8th Air Force.

Agree 100% This is right up there with the silliness of casting a black actor to play Hannibal.

It looks like it will be as I thought, that they feature a shuttle mission to North Africa, and thus shoehorn the Tuskeegee in. If they suddenly feature Tuskeegee airmen in the UK, I’m out.

Agree on the romance. Band of Brothers and Master and Commander are the top two examples of movies (or series) that work because they leave all that stuff out. A story about B-17 crewmen doesn’t need any romance at all.

The Pacific had romance.

Robert Leckie with the Australian gal in Sydney.

John Basilone meeting and marrying Lena.

Robert Leckie coming home and romance his neighbor Vera who he ended up marrying til his death.

In another forum I posted the trailer I made the same comment about the Tuskegee Airmen and people called me negative, said I don't know anything about World War 2 accuracy, that the makers had military advice from people who did serve in WW2 so what do I know, and even said I was prejudice.

Band of Brothers had romance too. Everyone in the 506 loved Captain Sobel.

Looks like a video game (and not a sim!). Some of the scenes from the ground look like a Call of Duty game.. No instant chills like the BoB intro. I remain firmly in the middle of the road so far from what I’ve seen, hoping my skepticism will prove misplaced.

Yep, same. I like war movies, but my eye was rejecting some of what I saw there. Still, there ain't much coming otherwise. I hope it doesn't suck.

Looks good for the most part but some of the CGI looked a little fake and most of the action scenes are overdone, IE a headon pass by a German fighter is terrifying so TEN German fighters making a head on pass must be even more so!

And I thought I was the only one who thought that head-on attack looked wrong.

In the second link the actor talking about the 100th Bombardment Group just sounded stupid for someone involved in the movie. What he said was inaccurate and poorly stated.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

To this day, David Schwimmer as Captain Sobel remains to me one of the most bizarre casting choices that actually worked out well!

Look up pictures of both, from a physical appearance perspective it was perfect casting. And Schwimmers performance was excellent as well.
