  • How does the little green god find its way to Petticoat Lane, London, where Sam Bates picks it up off a junk stall for twelve shillings?
  • Long afterwards, spurred on by a friend's casual remark, Sam takes it to a Regent Street jeweller who realises its true value and buys it for £12,500. From time to time we hear of it changing hands until finally it is knocked down to a South American multi-millionaire for £75,000. Its new owner gets it flown home at once to his house in Santiago, Chile. Biggles and Algy now enter the story and we find them following the route of the aircraft which never reached its destination.
