Available to own for the very first time, this prestigious and acclaimed 1970s BBC drama series follows the lives of the daring young pilots of the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War.
The air war on the Western Front is becoming ever more violent and brutal. Commanding “C” Flight based at Sainte Marie, Captain Triggers (Nicholas Jones) and his young pilots Alan Farmer (Tim Woodward) and Charles Gaylion (Michael Cochrane) face a deadly new threat.
A new German Fokker monoplane with a forward firing machine gun is devastating the obsolete British BE2s. Pilots and observers are dying faster than they can be replaced and the fledgling RFC is in danger of being decimated…
Unofficially, “C” Flight are given ‘Forward Action’ status – and told to develop new weapons and tactics to take on and destroy the German fighters…
With breathtaking aerial film sequences using authentic vintage aircraft replicas and gripping air-to-air filming, Wings is one of the very finest war drama series ever produced by British television. The aircraft were provided by Bianchi Aviation Services (Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines, The Blue Max)
