An Aerial Romance

Amy had met Jim Mollison, another long-distance flier, when he was the co-pilot of an airliner taking her from Brisbane to Sydney. The couple announced their engagement in May 1932, and the wedding took place on 29th July.

Jim and Amy flew to the USA together in 1933 and took part in the England-Australia air race the following year. However, Jim lived up to his reputation for drinking and womanising: the couple separated in 1936 and were divorced two years later.
