Masters of the Air concludes today with episode nine, the finale of Apple TV+’s hit limited series from the creators of Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

To celebrate the release, Apple has also dropped a new 1-hour documentary special entitled The Bloody Hundredth, which reveals more about the real stories of the 100th Bomb Group. You can stream it now on Apple TV+.

The Bloody Hundredth honours the real-life heroes of the 100th Bomb Group. The title comes from the nickname given to the 100th Bomb Group, due to the amount of casualties it endured. More than three quarters of the airmen in the group died in combat, mostly all within a four month span.

The documentary is narrated by Tom Hanks, who is also an executive producer on Masters of the Air. It features moving archive footage, and interviews with some of the surviving members of the group; both pilots and navigators.

The companion special also goes deeper into the stories of Gale Cleven and John Egan, the protagonists of Masters of the Air drama.
