    "Floyd Bennet" in the title, body text and tags should all read Floyd Bennett.

    "close up shot of the boy talking to camera - he is probably Floyd Bennet" - this is certainly not Floyd Bennett, who had died three years earlier (I don't know who it is, though).

    "Location unknown" - the location is Floyd Bennett Field, in New York.

    The aircraft seen is a Fleet 2, Reg. No. NC416K.

    CORRECTION - Floyd Bennett had died 9 years earlier.
