Biggles and the team are invited to join Scotland Yard as Air Policeman. They set out to track down why robberies are occuring in mid-flight, costing the country millions.
Air Commodore Raymond approaches Biggles, Algy, Ginger and Bertie with an interesting proposition. Now that the Second World War had ended, he could use good pilots in a new force he is forming as Assistant Commissioner at Scotland Yard. This force would be used to combat flying crooks.
The formation of a force would take some time, and there was a pressing matter to deal with and that is where our heroes come in. Biggles would be offered the rank of Detective-Sergeant.
Raymond informs Biggles of a spate of air related robberies involving the taking of various jewels. Biggles and the gang agree to take the job.
