Your review of 'Wings: The Complete Series (DVD)' has been sent.
“Brings back memories of watching Sgt Farmer, Lt Gaylion and Capt Triggers battle the Hun and their own demons in early World War 1. I watched the series as a teenager and am now reliving it with my 11-year-old. The special effects and flying sequences are low-budget but forced the producers to be creative in how the episodes were shot. The storyline takes some liberties with aviation history but incidentally provides us with a very believable picture of the changing times on the home front. Highly recommended, and with the DVD you don't have to wait a week between episodes!”
