Our comment:

A ginger influenced Aviation named after the fictional book Biggles in Borneo about WWII flying heroes Ginger, Algy and Biggles. Originally inspired by the ginger used in Canton Ginger liqueur being sourced from Borneo.


Created in 2008 by yours truly at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
