    Aviators Jim Mollison and Amy Johnson (also his wife) discuss plans for his flight across the Atlantic.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Greatest Air Adventure Ever! Good luck to 'Amy's' record breaking husband - J A Mollison - in his attempt on double Atlantic crossing in a light - all-British-'plane."

    Stag Lane Aerodrome (according to the paperwork).

    Aviators Jim Mollison and wife, Amy Johnson, stand in front of a small aeroplane. Mollison is talking about his plans to fly the Atlantic from Ireland.

    Mollison sits in the cockpit of his plane. Amy Johnson shakes his hands and says 'Goodbye and see you in Dublin'. They are flying out to Ireland separately. Their farewell is a little stilted. Amy walks away and Mollison closes the door of his plane to allow us to reads its name - The Hearts Content.
