    At the end of the shots list the cataloguer speculates that the footage "may date from around 1935 when she set up an airline in Paris". However what we're seeing here is when Amy Mollison was engaged as a pilot on Hillman's Airways cross-channel service in 1934.

    The attached news article from the era will confirm that detail.....

    "Passenger plane taxiing" - the aircraft Amy is manoeuvring is a de Havilland DH84 Dragon, Reg. No. G-ACEV.
