Goofs

Joe uses call letters to identify the aircraft incorrectly. He says "November-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" to announce N121PP. However, pilots NEVER include the first letter. The call should be "One-Two-One-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" and that is further abbreviated to just "Papa-Papa" one communication is established. See more »

Quotes

Lowell Mather: I'm actually a lot like a camel. I can go for months without water.
Roy Biggins: You've only gone twelve hours; you're *way* too much like a camel already.

User Reviews

Awesome show!
4 May 2010 | by sedlazek83See all my reviews

Wings was one of the greatest sitcoms ever. It was lighthearted and just plain funny. We usually get it off of Netflix, but my mother went and purchased the whole DVD set. She won't let me borrow it, however, because it took me a good year to return Overboard to her, and because she likes her daily fix of Tim Daly (no pun intended). Whenever I have a bad day I watch that show. It cracks me up. I agree; the setting is great. It's a charming area and I love the whole concept of the small town airport being the epicenter of excitement. My fiancé is cracking up because I am online rating Wings, but it's a great show. I love Roy. He's the guy you love to hate. And when I saw Brian on the remake of The Shinning, it kind of ruined something for me about his character lol. Great show!! Must watch!!
