  • Biggles and co get sidetracked into an Egyptian adventure whilst on their way to a squadron reunion dinner in South Africa. They meet a threatened scientist and agree to help him find a lost oasis (called Zenzura) in the middle of nowhere.
  • Their quest is hindered by the requisite bad guy who has claimed the oasis, and the antiques buried there, who gets off to a spectacular start by marooning them at the oasis by erasing their supply (camel) train.
