Storyline

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. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

A late 1930's Boeing Stearman and a modified late 1940s Belgian Stampe SV-4 were used to stand in for the WW1 aircraft flown and craft from the Shuttleworth collection added authenticity to the ground sequences. See more »

Goofs

Lots of fun !
24 November 2003 | by (Staffordshire, UK) – See all my 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 ;)
