Wings BBC TV series
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?
