Fuelling Flight
Shell’s aviation achievements in the 1930s

This exhibition celebrates Shell’s advertising campaigns, sponsorship and record breaking achievements in the 1930s. The exhibition particularly focuses on the company’s endorsement of flight and women, coinciding with our festival themes. Shell provided the fuel for Amy’s record breaking solo flight to Australia in 1930.

The material comes mainly from the Shell Heritage Art Collection, the Shell Archives, the Shell Film and Video department, the Shell Photographic department and the SMBP archive. Exhibition curated by Nicky Balfour Penney and Emma Mackinnon at the Shell Heritage Art Collection.
