Awesome / Red Tails

  • Almost all of Lightning's combat flying, although Easy is frustrated that he often disobeys orders to use it.
    • Special mention goes to him understanding the maneuver Pretty Boy used on him before and using it to take out a German plane.
    • As well as the pilots quickly figuring out the German jets' weaknessesnote  and exploiting them.
  • Ray Gun earning the respect of, and risking his own safety for, the other prisoners in the German POW camp.
  • In a meta sense, the movie itself getting made, despite (rather racist) studio interference and/or disinterest.
