Looking back, Ginger could see a great column of black smoke rising from the carrier. And that was not the only place from which smoke was rising. Buildings were alight around a level area on the shore which he supposed was the landing-ground. Bertie took up formation from above, and presently Algy, with a strip of fabric trailing from his wing-tip, soared up from below. "I must have a photograph of this," Biggles told Ginger, and climbing up to ten thousand feet, he took a number of shots. By this time several aircraft were in the air, so Biggles, deciding that it was a case where discretion was the better part of valour, headed away to the south, easily outstripping the Japanese machines that were making a half-hearted attempt to follow.

Standing on a carpet of short, bluish-coloured moss, Ginger surveyed the scene: There was not a soul in sight. All was strangely quiet. "Your friends seem to have departed, Rex," observed Biggles to Captain Larrymore. "Don't you believe it," was the smiling answer. "There are a thousand eyes watching us from those innocent - looking palms, I'll warrant. " Cupping his hands round his mouth, Rex uttered a cry that sounded like " Ay-eesh, Ay-eesh ! " Instantly the jungle came to life. There was a wild yell, and from it poured hundreds of brown men of such savage appearance that Bertie began moving towards his machine.

I should say it's the ideal aircraft for the job," asserted the Air Commodore. "The range is important. " "What about a communication machine ? " asked Algy. "I think a Consolidated Liberator would suit us best," replied Biggles. "Again, we've got high speed, long range and a big load. " "The Liberator is a big four-engined job," mutterea the Air Commodore. " "It's got a tricycle undercarriage, which makes for easy landing, and the big Fowler air-brakes pull it up quickly," Biggles pointed out.
