Reissued with a stunning new cover, this is the perfect introduction to this classic adventure series for new readers.
When zero visibility forces Biggles to land his Vandal amphibian aircraft on the North Sea he thinks he's just got a spot of aeroplane bother. Bigger trouble is ahead for Biggles when he takes an unchartered ride in a flying boat manned by 'Blackbeard' -- a cohort of the Russian Airfleet and accomplice in a plot to bomb Britain.
