Set in an airport terminal in Nantucket, Wings
, often compared to Cheers
, followed the lives of Joe (Steven Weber) and Brian Hackett (Timothy Daly), both pilots for Sandpiper Air, a small commuter service. Though being brothers and business partners, Joe and Brian are polar opposites. Joe is organized and work-driven, while Brian is more free-spirited. But in the midst of their differences, they have a lot in common, including Helen (Crystal Bernard), a mutual friend since childhood, and together the three of them were referred to as "The Three Musketeers".
Also in the brothers' lives were Fay (Rebecca Schull), the stewardess and ticket counter manager; Roy (David Schramm), the manager of the rival airline, Aeromass; and Lowell Mather (Thomas Haden Church), the airport mechanic.
