A collection devoted to the life and achievements of the Hull-born aviatrix Amy Johnson (1903-1941). Amy was the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia in 1930, a flight that brought her international acclaim and was the beginning of a record breaking career. The collection includes photographs, trophies, flying gear, medals, souvenirs from Amy’s foreign travels and the iconic pigskin flying bag that was found at the 1941 crash site in the Thames Estuary. A selection of the collection is always on display.
