First one seems to be Supermarine Swift;
Second one is a F-86D;
Third is a Boeing 707, probably the -300 (the most numerous in Pan American fleet); or one of their nine B720 (the shorter variant).

subject 11 : probably a reconstruction of history.
In the very begining of the 20th century, french pionniers Fabre, captain Ferber and Robert Esnault-Pelterie used cars to tests parts of their planes (for example : propellers).
If IMCDB is right ( [] ), I'm very doutfull that in the mid 20's such way of testing was still in use !
