Interesting trailer. Are you seriously planning a "fulll length" movie using the now outdated Visual quality of IL-2, as opposed to the visuals and detailed interior cockpits of IL-2: Cliffs of Dover? The interior shot at 1:51 is especially poor in terms of realism; also, your IL-2 sequences seem a bit low in resolution, at times with noticeable jaggies, etc.

Constructive critique:You would never have seen an RAF pilot, or anyone else, smoking a filtered cigarette in WWII; essentially, no filtered cigarettes in WWII.

Good use of Chroma key compositing to insert your live actors into IL-2 aircraft visuals, but technique could possibly be somewhat better applied.
Along with other IL-2 and ClOD videos and trailers by Tinus le Roux, this Hans Marseilles trailer has some excellent composite shots/scenes. You'll find many more examples in the WWII pilot Interview Series by Tinus. Tinus le Roux youtube Channel

Note that the O2 Mask which you used is a bit odd:

...Because it is not connected in any way to an O2 source by tubing (nor radio microphone connection)...There could be no O2 flow to your pilot, nor radio voice broadcasts from them..
Here is a snapshot from 1969 Battle of Britain movie, and/or some other movie:

See the mask at 2:32 in this Documentary movie clip:

Here is an excellent youtube vid about the Bof B era Oxygen mask:

The "Action-Action-Action" cinematography/editing of the air battle in your trailer is good, but for a full length movie I suggest that you develop a screenplay to choreograph the action in order to best engage your viewers emotionally and to tell a "story" of the aerial combat engagement...with a rise and fall of action and emotion.

Finally, you have chosen to not show the hakenkreuze? Why, then, make any attempt at an historically accurate "film".

Bottom line: Good luck with your movie...Looking forward to seeing it sometime next year.
