Amy Johnson, CBE (1 July 1903 – 5 January 1941) was a pioneering English aviator and was the first female pilot to fly alone from Britain to Australia.

Flying solo or with her husband, Jim Mollison, she set numerous long-distance records during the 1930s.
She flew in the Second World War as a part of the Air Transport Auxiliary and died during a ferry flight
