    "Blackburn Universal Freighter" is the Blackburn G.A.L. 60 Universal Freighter Mk.1, (Serial No. WF320.), a prototype for the Blackburn Beverley.

    "Travel shot Past large planes" - the planes include a Vickers Viscount 700.

    "Vickers Attacker" should read Supermarine Attacker.

    "LV Delta wing 707 B. Avro SV Delta 'plane." should read....

    Delta wing Avro 707B, (Serial No. VX790). SV Avro 707A, (Serial No. WD280).

    "Short Bros Sa. 4" should read Short SA.4 Sperrin prototype, (Serial No. VX158).

    "Pan Jet 'plane taxiing along runway. SV Pan 'plane flying past with extra prop in centre. Angle shot Pan." should be replaced with the simpler "Pan Avro Ashton 2 taxiing along runway."

    "Vickers 508 plane" should read Vickers-Supermarine Type 508.

    "Boulton Paul Delta Plane PH 1 " should read Boulton Paul P111.
