Biggles Learns to Fly
Adventures with amazing flying machines!
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?
Always loved the books as a boy when my grandfather used to read them to me. He was ex RAF from the war and used to bring the stories to life with his own experiences as well. Bit boys own but see them in the context of the era and they are great stories for boys - mine still love them at 12 and 14 !
