    at 00.20 the aircraft shown is a PanAmerican Airways Sikorski S42 flying boat taxying on water

    at 00.24 on airfield (probably Croydon): long range rear view of large 4 engined biplane Short L.17 "Scylla" (G-ACJJ); exiting to right is aircraft with 3 vertical stabilisers- probably a Handley Page HP 42/45

    at 00.27.0 front view and the CU rear view: the same Short L.17 Scylla of British Imperial Airways (Only two were built and flew from March 1934: "Scylla" (G-ACJJ)- wrecked in 1940; "Syrinx" - scrapped in 1940). Both aircraft flew scheduled flights from London(Croydon) to Paris and other European cities

    00.35.0 three aircraft shown
    in foreground: the Short L.17 Scylla
    In background: Armstrong Whitworth 154 Argosy of British Imperial Airways
    in middle ground (and taxying): possibly a Ford Tri-Motor
