    The plane seen at the start is an Auster J-1, Reg. No. G-AHHH.

    Behind it is a de Havilland DH.89A Rapide, Reg. No. G-AKOJ.

    Appreciated as usual. Thanks jamied.

    I beg to differ jamied, but it's a Miles Gemini G-AKDJ originally owned by W/Cdr Hugh Kennard at Lympne Airport.

    Yup, on viewing the stills, I agree with you Hayling_Billy!
