  Amy Johnson, part 3 20 May 2005  
Amy Johnson
It's 75 years since Amy Johnson left England on her epic flight to Australia

Within the first three days of the journey, she'd already had to deal with a leaking petrol tank - and Turkish officials in Constantinople who refused her permission to fly over their air space.

But, she persuaded the authorities to let her go on.

Amy Johnson herself starts the story, in an archive reconstruction of her flight.
