    "Plane coming in to land at rural airfield." - it's a Fokker F.VIIa, Reg. No. H-NADR. Reducing this clip's current date range of 1920-29, this plane wasn't registered until April 1927.

    "Biplanes taxiing" - the stationery plane at this point is a Handley Page W.8f, Reg. No. G-EBIX.

    "Good M/S of plane taking off." - that's an Armstrong Whitworth Argosy I, Reg. No. G-EBLO.
