Diary marks 90th anniversary of record-breaking flight

Video: Retired Captain on opportunities for women in aviation (CNBC) The historic flight will be documented in a first-person account – based on Ms Johnson’s records, press reports at the time, and the telegrams she sent back to her parents in Hull – released online to mark the anniversary of her achievement. The diary – titled Twenty Days and described as “a story of Hollywood proportions” by author Dave Windass – will be released in daily instalments on the Amy Johnson Arts Trust website. It will feature all the highs and lows of the journey – which was undertaken with no radio link to the ground, no reliable information about the weather and basic maps to guide her over uncharted land and some of the world’s most inhospitable terrain.
