A Special Visitor

Towards the end of our 2011 season, the Museum was delighted to welcome a very special lady who arrived with a party of visitors. Mary Ellis (nee Wilkins) is one of the few surviving ‘Spitfire Girls’ – the band of indomitable ladies who, as members of the ATA (Air Transport Auxiliary), delivered aircraft to airfields from the factories, and collected damaged aircraft for repair during the Second World War. Mary herself flew 76 different types of aircraft and made over 1000 flights. Her favourite machine – the Spitfire! She is seen here in conversation with the Museum’s Dudley Hooley.
