An American executive is transported back to World War One to help a Royal Flying Corps airman
This sci-fi adventure may have had a poor reception, but it has some brilliant stunts involving a Bell 206B JetRanger helicopter. One such stunt sees Biggles land the helicopter on a flat wagon of a moving train and then take off again. This was filmed on the Nene Valley Railway and was apparently the first time such a stunt had been attempted. The train was hauled by French DeGlehn Nord ‘Compound’ 4-6-0 No.3.628, a loco suitable to a story set largely in World War One as it had been built in 1907. The locomotive is officially a du Bousquet Nord Class 3.513 4-6-0 which has since been repatriated back to France.
