    The event took place on 16 July 1921.

    "J H James" is Jimmy James. His aircraft is a Gloster Mars I.

    The first plane seen taking off, at 0:21, is the Bristol 29 of Alan Butler.

    "D S Forestier_Walker" should read D L Forestier-Walker, (his name being Dring Leslie Forestier-Walker). The plane that he crashes is a Sopwith Pup, Reg. No. G-EAVX.

    "Forestier-Walker climbs out and shakes hands with a man" - actually, that's the race winner Jimmy James.
