    "Farnborough, Hampshire 1961?" - the year of this particular air show is 1960. (The clip's current date range of 1960-69 can also be altered).

    "Plane flies past camera" - it's a Handley Page HPR-7 Dart Herald, Reg. No. G-APWA.

    "RAF plane" - that's a Handley Page Victor B2.

    "VS of helicopters." - amongst the numerous helicopters seen are a Westland Wessex and Westland Whirlwind.

    "Various shots of planes" - this includes the Short SC.1.

    That's immediately followed by the Avro 748 prototype, Reg. No. G-APZV.

    "Various shots of RAF planes in flight." - should be changed to :

    Various shots of planes in flight, including an Armstrong Whitworth AW.650 Argosy, (Reg. No. G-APRN), and a Hunting Jet Provost T4, (Serial Number XN468).
