Herne Bay Amy Johnson Bronze Unveiling details

Amy Johnson bronze maquette

Our special day is nearly here and this silhouette picture of the maquette will soon be a reality as the sun sets on Herne Bay seafront on Saturday evening.  The bronze statue will be unveiled at midday between the bandstand and the pier (bandstand end).   We are very proud to have HRH Prince Michael of Kent and modern day aviatrix Tracey Curtis-Taylor in attendance along with over 100 invited guests and sponsors.  We are also delighted to announce an exciting last minute addition to the event.  Champion aerobatics pilot and regular to Herne Bay skies, Lauren Richardson will be flying her stunning Pitts Special biplane in a breath taking solo display to honour the woman who inspired her to fly.  This is scheduled to take place at 12.15pm and Lauren will return to the seafront and be in the bandstand Makcaris for a ‘meet the pilot’ session at around 4pm.  A real treat for everyone and the icing on the cake for what looks to be a truly memorable day for the town and for Amy’s memory.
