Did You Know?

Trivia

Tony Shalhoub's father and mother's names are Joe and Helen, matching the two lead characters in "Wings". Additionally, his father's brother's name is Brian, the same as the show's character Joe. Coming from a NY theatre background and unfamiliar with the then year old program, Shalhoub was unaware of this until he saw his audition script. See more »

Goofs

Sandpiper only has one airplane, and Joe always reads its call number as "Nevada-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" or N121PP. However, there are a few episodes where the Sandpiper plane's tail shows N121PB and several more (mostly exterior shots) where it shows N160PB. See more »

Wings - the best and the funniest show I have ever seen
29 December 2000 | by (Wroclaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

I think that serial "Wings" is the best and the funniest show I have ever seen. Most of series are funny only for the first seasons and this show was funny for all 8 seasons. I like all characters especially Joe, Brian and Helen. At the end of last 8th season Joe and Helen said that they would come back from Vienna in one year (that means that "Wings" should have been continued in one year too). Now it is 3 years, but I still hope that the show will be continued. I am so glad that polish television also give us the chance to watch the reruns. I am still waiting for new episodes of this great show....
