- Biggles goes to the aid of his old friend Wilks in protecting an airline operation in remote Canada.
- Wilks had setup an airline servicing a remote goldmine. The bad guys muscled in in order to be in a permission to steal the mine's takings. Biggles and co help keep Wilks in operation and thwart the gang's plans, earning the mine's gratitude and future business as a result.
