    The aircraft dropping bombs are Hurricanes
    The \'dark Shots\' are of Bristol Beaufighters, not Blenheims
    The aircraft identified as a Heinkel bomber (i.e. Heinkel 111) is a Martin Maryland, a bomber/reconnaissance aircraft used by the RAF, Fleet Air Arm, South African Air Force, and the French (both before and after the Fall of France)
    There is also a brief shot of what appear to be a couple of Boeing B17 Flying Fortresses towards the end of the clip
