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 »

Quotes

Antonio: This song I learned in Italy. For awhile it was the only English I knew... My goat knows the bowling score, halleluiah...
Helen: It's "Michael, row the boat ashore".
Antonio: No!

One of the best shows ever!
7 March 1999 | by (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I loved this show! I looked forward to tuning in every week to see Joe, Brian, Helen and the rest! There was just something about them that kept you watching. It was a shame that it had to end but 8 years is a lot of shows plus with reruns I can watch it again and again! Wings forever!
