This is a black-and-white photograph that shows the six women pilots who provided an aerial escort for British aviator Amy Johnson when she arrived in Sydney on 4 June 1930. The photograph, which measures 15.0 cm x 19.8 cm, is glued to a mount upon which is inscribed the words 'Escort for Amy Johnson's landing in Sydney. Amy was the first woman to fly on her own England to Australia' and the names of the pilots who formed the escort. The pilots were from left to right: Meg Skelton, Bobby Terry, Evelyn Follett, M A Upfold, Phyllis Arnott and F Deaton. The photograph may have been taken outside a hangar at the Mascot aerodrome in Sydney.
