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

User Reviews

a beloved show!
16 October 2004 | by gramsgirlSee all my reviews

wings is not one of my favorite sit-coms. it IS my favorite sit-com. it is not only unique in that it's not set in a worn out new york or los angeles, but on the small island of nantucket, which orders up much more creativity and imagination from its writers, but it's also one of the best ensemble casts ever put together. few shows have beckoned me to fall in love with and care about the plight of such endearing characters. and it was such a disappointment when thomas hayden church left the show. he had truly honed a lovably unique and funny character on the show. the flaws and strengths of all the characters are so aptly attended to. wings is intelligent and witty with superb writing and superb conveying and interpretation of that writing in its fine actors. it is the only show that makes me feel like i'm with family when i join it... that makes me want to be a part of that family, joe, helen, brian, lowell, casey, antonio, alex, roy and faye. it's heartening to know that many others would like to see this fantastic piece of work come to DVD. so please...give our spirits WINGS!
