Death of pioneer pilot Amy Johnson 'was a covered up' says historian

A Hull-based historian claims that pioneer pilot Amy Johnson was killed in 1941 after a botched rescue mission after her plane crashed in the Thames Estuary.

LtCmdr Walter Edmund Fletcher jumped from HMS Haslemere into the Thames Estuary in an attempt to save Amy Johnson, but was overcome by the cold. He was pulled from the water unconscious and died soon afterwards. Johnson slipped away and was never found. The King awarded Fletcher the Albert Medal.
