  Wonderful Amy - Amy Johnson Exhibition - Amy`s Death
On 4 January 1941 Amy set off from Prestwick in an Airspeed Oxford which was to be delivered to Kidlington near Oxford.
The next day's weather was poor, with thick cloud, snow showers and poor visibility and Amy was advised not to take off, but she insisted that she would "smell her way" to Kidlington.
The most likely explanation, however, is that Amy ran out of fuel whilst trying to find her way through the appalling weather and decided to bale out rather than risk a forced landing in poor visibility.
