Biggles tells the story of the two greatest missions in flying history ever: the Battle of Britain and the German Bombardment.
It's the summer of 1940 and the Germans are launching bombing raids from bases in France, Belgium and Holland. The odds are against Britain in this struggle for airborne supremacy between the RAF and the German Luftwaffe. Armed with the ME109 fighter plane, the Luftwaffe have possession of incredible speed and fire power and Biggles shows what it was like to be a fighter pilot or a bombardier up against their strength: the scrambles, the terrible dogfights and the dangerous night raids.
It's a totally gripping real-life story of how the RAF succeeded in averting the German air invasion to become heroes of our time.
