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

The weapon testing ground scene was filmed in the now disused Beckton Gas Works in London, Which was also used for the Vietnam scenes in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987) a year later. See more »

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 ;)
