Roy Smart will give a talk about the life of the famous aviator, Amy Johnson. Amy, an unknown woman from Hull with very little flying experience, became the darling of the 1930s after she became the first woman to fly solo to Australia. The talk tells the story of her flying exploits, her disastrous relationships with men and her mysterious disappearance when her plane crashed into the Thames.
There is a charge of £2.50 for visitors. This goes towards the cost of speakers and Hall hire, as well as for the tea and biscuits that are included.
