    Despite the title card the aviatrix seen here is Elly Beinhorn, (not Elli). The name needs changing in body text and tags.

    What we are seeing in the clip is Beinhorn becoming only the second woman, (after Amy Johnson), to fly solo from Europe to Australia.

    Her aircraft is a Klemm L.26, Reg. No. D-2160.

    Note that in 1936 Beinhorn married the famous German racing driver Bernd Rosemeyer, who himself features on several British Pathe clips.
