The last living female pilot from World War Two, Mary Ellis, has died aged 101 at her home on the Isle of Wight.

Mrs Ellis was a member of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) and delivered Spitfires and bombers to the front line during the conflict.

She said she had flown "about 1,000 aeroplanes" during the war, before moving to the Isle of Wight in 1950 to take charge of Sandown Airport.
The ATA could deliver any RAF aircraft to anywhere in the UK armed with only a set of pilots notes and a map.

RiP Mary. The last of the even fewer
