Amy Johnson Amy Johnson, the world famous pilot, used to go to our school when it was called Boulevard Secondary School.  She was born in Hull in 1903 and died flying a Spitfire in 1941.  Many people believe that her aeroplane crashed into the River Thames after being shot down by anti-aircraft guns. However, no one seems to know what she was doing so far south as she was miles away from her planned flight-path.
