Amy Johnson

Amy Johnson

On the 24 of May of 1930 Amy Johnson became the first woman who flew without anyone else from England to Australia. Her nickname is  Lindbergh Girl because Charles Gindbergh was the first man that flew from England to Australia, and Amy was the first woman, so her fans gave her this nickname.

She had many accidents in this flight.The first accident was between Aleppo and Bagdad by a breakdown so she was forced to land in the desert. Between the 8 and 9 of May she broke a part of the wheel. On the 17 of May there were monsoon rains so she was forced to land. On the 24 of May she arrived in Australia with a big smile in her face but very exhausted. She made many flights solos after this one, and she won many prizes,but this was the one and only special to her.
