    "the G.A.L. 60" is the Blackburn G.A.L. 60 Universal Freighter Mk.1, (Serial No. WF320), a prototype for the Blackburn Beverley. "Air Speed Ambassador" in text and tags should read Airspeed Ambassador 2, (Reg. No. G-ALZP). "The Private Venture Ground Attack Fighter" is a modified Gloster Meteor F.8, information which might be added in brackets. It's being flown by Jan Zurakowski. "Distant shot of it doing aerobatics." - the aerobatic move seen is named the "Zurabatic Cartwheel". "The new De Havilland Ceda (?)" should read de Havilland Sea Venom. (Correction also needed in tags). "Vickers Super Marine 535" should read Vickers-Supermarine Type 535. "Hawker 10.67" should read Hawker P.1067. "Vickers Super Marine 508" should read Vickers-Supermarine Type 508. "PR3 takes off, the Canberra with Armstrong Sidley engines air to air shots." Actually, what the film shows is the English Electric Canberra B5 (Serial Number VX185), so a mistake by the original film editor there! This is then followed…

    Ran out of space on my earlier comment, so this is a continuation;

    This is then followed by air-to-air shots of the English Electric PR3, with Armstrong Siddeley (not Sidley) Sapphire engines.

    "The SA4 Bomber" is the Short SA.4.

    "Bolton 4P111" should read Boulton Paul P111.

    "Avro 70 7A" should read Avro 707A.

    "The 70 7B" should read Avro 707B.
