    "'Nene Viking' airliner" - that's a Vickers Nene Viking, Reg. No. G-AJPH.

    "planet satellite" should read Planet Satellite.

    "Seagull, amphibious aircraft" - it's the Supermarine Seagull ASR1, (Serial Number PA143).

    "Flying Wing showing jet exhausts" - this is the Armstrong Whitworth A.W.52, (Serial Number TS363.)

    "Tudor 8 jet" - that's an Avro Tudor, (Serial VX195).
