  • Biggles Learns to Fly

    WE Johns

    Product Code: AINXN
    Paperback 9 years +
    This is the story of the very beginning, of the Air Force and of Squadron Leader James Bigglesworth, AKA Biggles. It's the First World War and Biggles is just 17. The planes are primitive; combat tactics are non-existent; the only form of communication for pilots and their gunners is by hand signals. They are reliant on the skill of their fellow crew, their wit and, above all else, bravery. In hostile enemy skies, where instinct and fast reactions are everything, Biggles must learn to be a real fighter pilot, or die. But does he have what it takes?
