Reissued with a stunning new cover, this is the perfect introduction to this bestselling series for new readers. He tilted the machine on to its side, holding up his nose with the throttle, and commenced to slip wing-tip first towards the ground. Whether he was over British or German territory he neither knew nor cared; he had to get on to the ground or be burnt alive.

This is the story of the very beginning ó of the Air Service and of Biggles. It's the First World War and Biggles is just 17; the planes are primitive; combat tactics are non- existent; and pilots and their gunners communicate by hand signals and have no contact with the ground. This is where Biggles learns his craft and finds he has a certain aptitude for flying in battle.
