Product description


Adoration surrounded Amy Johnson throughout most of the 1930s. Around the world people admired this young woman who had flown solo from England to Australia in a small single-engined biplane, a woman with less than 100 hours' flying experience. She proved to be forceful and single-minded in many circumstances. At an early age she fell in love with a man several years her senior and pursued him relentlessly for six long years. Finally he left her. She was distraught and turned to aviation as if on the rebound. Her aviation successes soon brought her to the public eye and she was feted wherever she went and entered the realms of a Hollywood-like existence with the rich and famous. In 1932 she married the flamboyant aviator Jim Mollison, also an aviation legend. For six years they made record-breaking flights together and lived the high life of the 30s. However, the marriage eventually failed in 1938. This was now a period of reflection for Amy, who desperately wanted to escape from the whirl of public life yet pined for continued admiration for her flying skills. When World War II arrived Amy was eager to fly to help the war effort.

She found a post as pilot in the Air Transport Auxiliary and it was whilst ferrying a twin-engined aircraft in 1941 that both she and the aircraft vanished. There have been many theories about her mysterious death, but this book offers a new solution to what happened on Amy's final flight.
