Biggles (1986)

Directed by
John Hough

Neil Dickson and Alex Hyde-White star in John Hough's time-travel adventure, which takes its inspiration from author WE Johns' long-running series of books about a World War I flying ace. During an electrical storm in 1980s Manhattan, business entrepreneur Jim Ferguson is suddenly transported to the Western Front during the First World War. There he meets James Bigglesworth, an elite fighter pilot on a top-secret mission to destroy a German super-weapon. But, before he can meaningfully assist Biggles, further electrical activity whisks Ferguson back to the New York of his own time. There, the mysterious Colonel Raymond explains both the supreme urgency of Biggles' mission - and that Ferguson has a psychic link with Biggles, his 'time twin'. Ferguson subsequently finds himself bounced back and forth in time, causing confusion among his friends and a grave threat to Biggles' attempt to prevent German domination. Edited for content.
