    "nearest camera the De Havilland Delta F.D.2. SV. of the Delta F.D.2." should read nearest camera the Fairey Delta 2, (AKA the FD2).

    "the Olympus Canberra" - the aircraft is actually an English Electric Canberra, with Rolls-Royce Olympus engines.

    "wing of the Comet" - the craft is a de Havilland Comet 3.

    "Pan the Delta FD2" - again, this should read Fairey Delta 2.

    "Pan, the twin pioneer" - this is a Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer, Reg. No. G-ANTP.

    "looking up at the Gyrodyme" - this should read Fairey Jet Gyrodyne.

    "Pan the Gnat" - the craft is a Folland Gnat 1.
