Amy Johnson
Penetrating through soft light clouds; airspace; blended for all who dare to impress
Assiduous Amy Johnson did just that; a derring-do role model; a legacy;
relative in the minds of many that still lives on.
Renowned for her solo flight: London to Australia in 1930
Transcended the hitherto, male domination, seizing world-recognition
Flying away from ground possessions, flying amongst the sky-road directions
Craved for more adrenaline; G-AAAH flight, enduring all weather formats;
monsoon rains, tremendous heat, nothing deflated her sentiment. 
Intelligent, pioneering English aviator, she made household name in commonwealth.
Well deserved acceptance, she arose to fame, like a famous movie star;
no stranger to publicity nor to camera
Yet, sadly, her plane came down; controversial circumstances overlapped
Will we ever find out the truth, about how our beloved Amy Johnson died



Author's Notes:
Amy Johnson was the first female solo pilot who travelled from London to Australia in the 1930's. Still unknown to this day why her plane came down.
I posted a different version of this, this morning. However, I wasn't truly happy with it and decided to change it.

I like these biography style writes, this and William Wilberforce... If you like motorbikes try a ride in a microlight! and you'll see why Amy and Amelia liked buzzing about in the skies.. sadly I had to stop flying a microlight, but I did fly a Tiger Moth for my 50th and it was a great buzz, with its gypsy engine humming away... I am consoled these days with my motorbikes though!


Good piece of nostalgic writing. I enjoyed it   :O)
