    "shot of Belvedere Helicopter" - the craft is a Westland Belvedere HC1.

    "Panning shots S.C.1" - the craft is a Short SC.1.

    "panning of Victor" - the craft is a Handley Page Victor B2.

    "group of four Provost's" - the craft are all Hunting Jet Provost models.

    "group of Lightning" - could be expanded to English Electric Lightning.

    "Air to air Beagle light plane" - the craft is a Beagle B206.X, reg. No. G-ARRM.

    "Air to air Auster Beagle" should be deleted, as should the following "Air to air light aircraft.

    After "Air to air shot of group of Provost and Lightning" should come the following:

    Further air to air of Beagle 206.X. Air to air of Beagle AOP11, (Serial No. XP254). Air to air of Beagle Airedale, (Reg. No. G-ARNP). Further air to air of Beagle AOP11.
