In the 1986 film Biggles - Adventures in Time, based on the popular British adventure series for children, we follow the journey of Jim Ferguson, an American pilot during World War I. One day, while flying his plane, he finds himself suddenly transported to 1980s London. Confused and disoriented, Jim is approached by a woman named Debbie who claims to have been sent from the future to bring him to safety. Before he knows it, he is dragged into a wild adventure through time, space, and alternate realities.

Debbie explains that Jim has somehow fallen into a rift in time, and that they need to find a way to close it before it destroys all of history. Luckily, they are aided by the famous British ace pilot James "Biggles" Bigglesworth, who just so happens to be an old acquaintance of Jim's. Together with his team, which includes his trusty sidekick Algy and a beautiful scientist named Marie, Biggles teaches Jim the ways of time travel and helps him navigate the dangerous alternate realities they encounter.

The first alternate reality they encounter is a world where World War I never happened, and instead a peaceful utopia has been established under the rule of a benevolent dictator named Colonel Raymond. However, when Jim discovers that this reality was only made possible by the villainous machinations of a time-traveling weapons dealer named Erich von Stalhein, he and his team must race against time to stop von Stalhein before he wreaks havoc on the past, present, and future.

The second alternate reality they find themselves in is a world where the Nazis won World War II and are now in control of everything. There, they encounter the evil Baron von Richthofen, an old enemy of Biggles', who has been using time travel to alter history to his own gain. With the help of a group of rebels, our heroes band together to take down von Richthofen and put an end to his wicked schemes.

As they traverse through time and space, Jim begins to grow close with Marie, developing a romantic relationship with her as they face each new challenge together. Meanwhile, Biggles and Algy's bromance blossoms as they support each other through the trials they face.

Throughout it all, the film features thrilling aerial dogfights and stunning special effects. It's a fun, action-packed adventure that is sure to delight fans of the Biggles books and anyone who enjoys a good time travel story.
