Possibly the A15, near Digby and Cranwell, who both used these aircraft in numbers.

Incredibly straight road - a Roman road?

Possibly Avro 504K (skid between wheels).

Sir Alan Cobham's Flying Circus?

Thank you for all the help with this image, we'll update the catalogue and post the new record here in due course. 1926 is a bit early for Alan Cobham's National Aviation Day Display team, maybe someone can find evidence like a local newspaper report to work out who the dare-devils were?
