Eight Bristol Beaufighters. A number of Beaufighters were converted to target tugs after the end of WW2, these are possibly part of that work.

Two of the first three prototype Bristol Sycamore helicopters. Per Wikipedia: 'On 25 July 1947, the first prototype, VL958, which was powered by a 450-horsepower (340 kW) Pratt & Whitney Wasp Junior (there being no suitable engine in the Bristol range), performed the type's maiden flight... In mid-1948, the third prototype... built to the improved Sycamore Mk.2 standard, was completed; ... fitted with a 550-horsepower (410 kW) Alvis Leonides engine ... (which) would become the standard powerplant for all subsequent Sycamore production.' The Sycamore was ...'the first British helicopter to receive a certificate of airworthiness, as well as being the first British-designed helicopter to be introduced by and to serve with the Royal Air Force (RAF).'
