    "Hawker Fury" should read Hawker Sea Fury.

    The "Viscount" referred to is a Vickers Viscount 630.

    "Shorts Seagull" - despite what the commentator says, it's actually a Supermarine Seagull.

    "Queue of people waiting to board 'Apollo'" - it's an Armstrong Whitworth AW.55 Apollo prototype.

    "Vickers Armstrong 510" should read Supermarine Type 510.

    "Hawker 1052" should read Hawker P.1052.
