    "Jaques Verger" should read Jacques Verger, a short newspaper piece confirming that here.....

    The helicopter seen is an early test model of the the Sikorsky VS-300. Igor Sikorsky himself is piloting the craft. More info here.....

    Harry Place was my grandfather and Sadie Place is my grandmother. Mrs Place lives in America now with us. Mr. Place sadly passed away in America in 1993. They had one beautiful daughter who was my mother who we sadly lost in 2012. Thank you for this clip! It is a gift like no other for all of us!! God Bless!
