Angel wings are/were the primary mode of transport for angels, allowing them teleport anywhere on Earth, Heaven, or Hell. An angel's wings cannot be perceived by human eyes, however a silhouette of the wings can be seen if an angel chooses to reveal its power. When an angel is killed, their body and wings will leave scorch marks on their surroundings. After the angels were ejected from Heaven by Metatron, the wings on angels were either burned completely off in the fall or were left as mangled vestigial limbs, preventing the angels from teleporting. The only angels unaffected by Metatron's spell were Michael and Lucifer, who were both locked away deep in Hell in the Cage, and Metatron.
Angel feathers also hold special properties, specifically being a key component to the time traveling spell first used by Henry Winchester in 8.12 As Time Goes By. A single feather also holds rejuvenating properties for an angel, as shown by Lucifer, who used a fossilized feather to temporarily heal his deteriorating vessel, Vince Vincente.
