Air Aces Great Show
I finished watching the first episode and was mesmerized with the presentation and facts presented to the viewer. Air Aces I hope will not focus on just aces of the allies but of the axis powers as well, such as Japans Saburo Sakai and Germany's Afred Galland.
Patiently Waiting for Season 2
Beautifully presented show, bringing legendary Air Aces to life.
