Trivia

Owing to the shortage of WW1 aircraft in flyable condition, many of the aerial scenes were filmed using 1/6 scale radio-controlled models. One of the model aircraft operators was Derek Piggott, who was a stunt pilot in the film, 'The Blue Max'. See more »

Wings BBC TV series
19 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The "Wings" BBC TV series about the adventures of a fictional group of Royal Flying Corps personnel was most interesting and I have been searching for the series on video and/or DVD for a number of years.

The BBC seems never to have considered releasing the series, however.

The series was repeated on the UK Gold digital TV channel some years ago.

I succeeded in recording a few episodes, with the inevitable lengthy advertising breaks, but for some reason the series came to an abrupt end with the penultimate episode!

I believe that the outdoor and flying scenes were filmed at Lasham airfield in Hampshire, using a full size non-flying model of the BE2c aircraft, which apparently showed an urge to fly when it was taxied across the airfield, while the flying scenes used large radio-controlled models, many of which were destroyed during filming.

The combined hangar, office, and officers mess film set was displayed for some time at the Imperial War Museum in London in the 1970s.

Does anyone know if the series was ever released on DVD or video tape, or who owns the copyright?
