Ah, so now we know why we have such a young pilot in this series, despite the real pilots being World War II vets. They pulled off a convincing explanation that fit in with the spirit of the times.
Some stunning CGI work, except when it came to the physics of large objects with a great deal of mass and their movement in real life. That Hong Kong flyover and landing was just poorly done.
I shouldn’t be too hard on this series for seeming like a play-time version of the 1960s. They’ve been more true to it than a series like, say, Crime Story ever was.
I’m still charmed.
