    The planes seen here are, as the cataloguer surmises, RAF aircraft.

    They are all Hawker Fury models.

    The aircraft 00.02 - 00.03 are Gloster Gauntlets. Frame 00.07 foreground is a Hawker Fury fighter number K2048 from Number 1 Fighter squadron, the film must be later than 1934 as the fury has no rudder tricolour flash which wasn\'t used after then, in the bachground is a Supermarine Walrus anphibian. from 00.50 onward a Hawker Hind light bomber configured as an advanced trainer is filmed. The year is probably between 1935 and 1938.
