Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have built a huge US Airforce base in Bucks for a new Apple TV series.

The pair are said to be producing Masters Of The Air, for which a World War Two-age base, has been erected in Newland Park, Chalfont St Giles, according to national reports.

The cast features Jude Law's son, Rafferty, as well as Callum Turner, Austin Butler, Anthony Boyle and Line of Duty star Tommy Jessop, who was spotted in Bucks last week shooting scenes for the drama.

According to MailOnline, the set, which consists of Nissen huts and buildings, as well as numerous US Army vehicles, is believed to have cost an eye-watering £5 million, with filming expected to continue into 2022.
