Description

Series 1: Spring 1915. In an England still largely untouched by the horrors of the Great War, young men like Alan Farmer (Tim Woodward) and Charles Gaylion (Michael Cochrane)- join the RFC to earn their wings, still believing in the ’camaraderie of the air’. Their instructor, Captain Triggers (Nicholas Jones) knows the truth. German and British airmen are beginning to shoot at each other – and the air war is changing. Soon, it will be ‘kill or be killed’…

Series 2: The air war on the Western Front is becoming ever more violent and brutal.A new German Fokker monoplane is devastating the obsolete British BE2s and the fledgling RFC is in danger of being decimated…Unofficially, Captain Triggers’ “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)
