31 – Jason
Artist: Susan Webber
Sponsor: Neill & Brown Global Logistics
Hosted by: Citycare
Location: Elliott Chappell Health Centre, Hessle Road HU3 4BB
About the Design:
Jason was the name of Amy Johnson’s Gipsy Moth. This design celebrates the starting and finishing point of Amy’s flight from England to Australia with both nations’ flags adorning its wings. Many of the real-life features of Amy’s Gipsy Moth can be seen in this design. A replication of the badge which appeared on the side of the aeroplane can be seen on the body, and the same shade of green which coated the plane decorates the moth’s head, which is finished with rivets for a patina. Detail on the under-carriage is adorned with the same lettering G-AAAH.
