Mary Ellis took off on her final flight on Tuesday 24 July.
She left us mere mortals here on earth.
There is little more that can be said which hasn’t already been said today across the media. So let’s keep it simple.
When Joy Lofthouse died last year, Mary told Solent Aviatrix, “It is hard to lose a good pal after so many years, I miss her very much.”
Now Mary Ellis has rejoined her old pal Joy where they can play with the clouds. Heavenly Twins back together.
Rest in peace.
