    "Squadron Leader Callard" is Arthur Calllard.

    The other two crew members alighting from the aircraft are Flt Lt E A J Hasket, (navigator), and Flt Lt A G R Robson, (radio operator).

    The station they've landed at is Andrews Air Base. They arrived there on 23 February 1951.

    In the second story, the helicopter is a Hiller HJ-1 Hornet, Reg. No. N8120H. It was invented by Stanley Hiller Jr, who can be seen looking in to the camera from his creation at 00:55. (A photo of Hiller for comparison is available here......
