His promotion took place in Another Job for Biggles which was serialised as Biggles in Arabia from February 1950, predating the Air Detective by 3 months.

SynopsisEdit

The Sultan of Lashanti is scheduled to visit London. There is disturbing intelligence that a hardened American master criminal is planning to ambush the Sultan's aircraft and rob him of his crown jewels. Biggles must protect the Sultan but without the Sultan knowing about it.
