For the second part Dawn (which I'm in the process of researching at the moment) I intend to use some of the experiences of the early aviators. Well, naturally, there was only one thing for it: find out what it was like to fly in an open cockpit. I went up in a Tiger Moth in June - designed in the Twenties so fairly close to the planes my characters would use. I hope you like the full Amy Johnson look. And to prove that, yes, I really did go up, here's a shot from the air. It may look as if I'm the pilot but in fact I'm in the observer's seat - the pilot sits behind in these two-seaters. Alex, my guide for the day, entered into the spirit of the thing as we looked for 'Jerry' over the Cotswolds.
Perhaps you have a favourite location. If so, do tell me about it.
