    Reducing this clip's current date range of 1930-39, this footage is shot following Hughes' record-breaking flight of 19 January 1937. (This also eliminates the final paragraph of the shots list which expresses doubt of the year).

    "Howard Hughes with his plane" - the aircraft is the Hughes H-1 Racer, Reg, No. R258Y.
