    Seen here is a Short S.25 Sandringham flying boat, (originally a Mark III Short Sunderland), still bearing its RAF Transport Command code of OQZF.

    Just beneath the pilot's window can be seen the BOAC "Speedbird" logo. These civil markings were only acquired in early 1943, so the clip's current date range of 1930-39 is incorrect.

    That sounds plausible - the majority of the clips on that reel are from the 1940s. Can anyone accurately date this?
