During the rest of her short life, Johnson made several historic, records flights including flights from London to Australia and London to Tokyo. With the advent of WW II, Johnson joined the British Air Transport Auxilary and while flying from Blackpool to Oxford in 1941, crashed in the Thames Estuary and drowned.
