Our list of the best quotes from Apple TV+ television show created by John Shiban and John Orloff, based on Donald L. Miller’s book of the same name. Masters of the Air follows the men of the 100th Bomb Group (the “Bloody Hundredth”) as they conduct perilous bombing raids over Nazi Germany and grapple with the frigid conditions, lack of oxygen, and sheer terror of combat conducted at 25,000 feet in the air. It portrays the psychological and emotional price paid by these young men as they helped destroy the horror of Hitler’s Third Reich. Some were shot down and captured, some were wounded or killed. And some were lucky enough to make it home. Regardless of individual fate, a toll was exacted on them all.
We’ll add the best quotes once the series is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.

Major Harry Crosby: We came from every corner of the country with a common purpose. To bring the war to Hitler’s doorstep.
Maj. Gale ‘Buck’ Cleven: These daylight missions, they’re suicide.
Maj. John ‘Bucky’ Egan: Then what’s the move?
