Contents

  • Biggles sets up a secret air base in the heart of Borneo, and then proceeds to reek havoc on the unsuspecting Japanese stationed in the vicinity.
  • Highlights of their tour of destruction include shooting down the odd plane (and having a very good go at the odd aircraft carrier), rescuing a few prisoners (and then rescuing a lot more by raiding the camp), and using a few elephants to destroy a convoy and a barge-load of rubber.
