    The Gypsy Moth which she used is currently at the Museum in London. Bosses there says the plane is too fragile to be moved.

    Quote Message: We have had an issue with them about bringing Amy Johnson's plane up to the city and for logistical reasons they say it's impossible to do. I'm sure there's much more the Science Museum can contribute. They get £45m of public money every year and some of that needs to be bought to Hull from Diana Johnson MP Labour, Hull North
