Maureen Lipman Unveils Amy

Nov. 14, 2016

At the end of August 2016, Maureen Lipman unveiled the statue of Amy Johnson commemorating 75 years since her death. The unveiling marks the end of the Amy Johnson Festival; a celebration of Amy’s life, helping to raise awareness of her achievements as an aviator, as an engineer and as a woman of her time, and to encourage young women to consider engineering and the sciences as career choices through the presentation of positive role models and creative projects which explore technical, digital or mechanical ideas and applications, as well as to place Hull in an international context and to help set the scene for Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
