    The aircraft featured is the Kaiser-Hammond Y2-Aircar, Reg. No. NX91090.

    The shots list says "Location of events unknown (probably USA?)" - the craft was developed in Oakland, California, and the plane's Registration Number is an American one, so we can assume that the location is indeed USA.

    "Henry Kaiser" is American industrialist Henry J Kaiser.
