Masters of the Air


Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks are bringing the story of the airmen who flew out of the East in WW2 to the small screen in the next big HBO epic – Masters of the Air.

The sequel to Band of Brothers and The Pacific, the series will tell the tale of the American airmen of the Mighty Eighth, who flew daring bombing raids over mainland Europe. It’s not clear yet how much of it will be shot in the region, but with a $500m budget and Hollywood royalty behind it, all the signs point to a fantastic new show coming to our screens soon.

You can learn more about the Eighth Air Force and their impact on life in the East here.
