• Short Summary

    Shots of the two aviators Jim Mollison and Amy Johnson who have announced their engagement.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. Romance in the Air! Congratulations to newly engaged Mr J. A. Mollison & Miss Amy Johnson."

    London.

    Record breaking aviator Jim Mollison standing outside building (cigarette in hand).

    James shakes hands with record breaking Australian aviator Amy Johnson.

    Closer shot of Mollison and Johnson chatting.

    The couple walk down steps into waiting car.

    Sound Track cuts out

    This footage is followed by some more shots of Mollison and Johnson (possibly on board a ship). It looks quite cold (? Cape Town in April) as Amy Johnson is wearing a fur trimmed coat. C/U of Mollison (film in poor condition) C/U of Amy and Jim (Poor condition) C/U Jim (even worse).

    These may be the shots referred to in 32/32 "Record Breakers Both" of the two sweethearts meeting in Cape Town after Mollison's flight - without any sound track it is difficult to discover what is what. There is about 57 feet of this material.
