The last surviving female Spitfire pilot who flew 400 of the iconic planes during World War Two has died aged 101.
Mary Ellis was the last known surviving pilot of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), which delivered Spitfires and bombers to RAF airfields during the war.
At the start of the war women were not allowed to fly military aircraft but this changed in 1940.
Mary, whose maiden name was Wilkins, joined the ATA in 1941 after hearing an advert for women pilots on the radio.
She was born into a farming family in Brize Norton, Oxon, in 1919 and learnt to fly at a nearby aero club.
