    "Scott and Black" are Charles Scott and Tom Campbell Black.

    "the England to Australia Air Race" - the competition was called the MacRobertson Air Race.

    "Crowds at he (sic) airport run towards the plane" - it's a de Havilland DH.88 Comet, Reg. No. G-ACSS.

    The date of arrival was 23 October 1934.
