As we prepared for Amy Johnson's solo flight, we considered all of the tasks that would need to be completed before take off. We checked the parachute, made sure the tyres and wheels were safe, a compass and map were packed. We then set off along the runway. Amy hit many challenges, a sandstorm, an unplanned landing because of a shortage of fuel and the most challenging of all, she hit a monsoon and crash landed her plane. Thankfully, a school teacher came to her rescue and with the help of the students, they fixed the planes wings by sewing old shirts and fabric together. Amy completed her solo flight and was greeted in Darwin, by huge crowds cheering! Unfortunately, she missed to break the world record by just 3 days.
We discovered that Amy Johnson had packed in her bag, some meat paste sandwiches for her journey. We decided to try them to see what they tasted like, there was a mixed response!
To find out more about Amy Johnsons flight, we looked at various secondary historical sources. We looked at clues and matched them to the sources.
