    "L/S's of a small plane taking off in London" - the location is Heston Aerodrome, London.

    The aircraft is a de Havilland DH.84 Dragon, Reg. No. G-ACMJ, operated by Jersey Airways Ltd.

    "Several good aerial shots of London, the Isle of White and Jersey." - this includes, at 00:27, a good shot of Selsey pier, followed by shots of the Solent.
