One minute the New Yorker advertising expert Jim Ferguson is at a business party — the next he finds himself way back in 1917 in a plane fight during World War I. Mr. Raymond explains to him that he has a time-twin, to whom he’s relocated in space and time whenever one of them is in trouble. So he has to help his twin, biplane pilot Biggles, in his attempt to destroy a German super weapon, that could win their war. Of course it’s hard for Jim to explain his sudden disappearances to his fiance, Debbie.

User Reviews: My Grandad used to read the books as a child and my Mum introduced them to me, so its inevitable that i’d watch this film as a child needless to say me and my Mum love it !!
The film strays "slightly" away from the books World War 1 setting, (only in the eighties would they have made it into a time travel story) but the characters are faithful to the originals written in the books.
The films plot is a bit silly, but its lots of fun without been stupid and it makes me feel better every time i watch it.
I just hope my "time twin" is someone as cool as Captain James ‘Biggles’ Bigglesworth 😉
