Previous Episode: Masters of the Air Episode 3 Recap and Explained
The missions they go in the first two episodes are tragic as they lost many of their soldiers. British Air Force and American Air Force have different methods for bombing Germans. British prefer night light bombing as they are good at it and less risky. But American Air Force prefers daylight bombing, but it’s very risky and can increase the deaths of its own crews.
In episode three they go for a bigger mission than they had gone before. But the climate was an enemy. The mission gets delayed in hours and makes the mission in tension. Many crews got hit by German’s heavy resistance, Curt and Dickie died when they landed their plane after they got hit. Quinn landed somewhere in France and he got two choices from them to either surrender or flee out.
Celeven somehow managed to reach the IP bomb the factory and make the mission a success. Cleven’s plane’s fuel tank was hit by Germans. Cleven told his crew to throw out no bolted things to fly on minimal fuel. The remaining crews landed on Africa safely making the mission a success with many losses. Cleven and Egan meet again, they have big road to move on.
