Biggles Learns Something is the sixth short story in the eighth anthology of Biggles Air Police short stories entitled Biggles Flies to Work. The anthology was first published in September, 1963,

SynopsisEdit

As Biggles noted to Ginger, in almost every case of illegal flying, the criminal made a point of choosing an isolated location. "Be funny, wouldn't it," he says to Ginger, "if a crook was smart enough to realize that and go to the other extreme by landing in the middle of a crowd of ten thousand people." So Biggles learns in this story.

References to the pastEdit

  • Laxter was von Stalhein's second pilot? There was a Verney Laxter in Biggles on the Home Front but he had died at the end of the story. Research has not revealed any other Laxter in the Biggles stories, certainly not in association with von Stalhein. Why should Johns mention this tantalizing detail when it is not necessary? Perhaps he was thinking of someone else? Dick Canton perhaps?
