Not sure about the Lightning, I think it may be XR754 http://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk ... php?id=623

The Buccaneer I'm more sure about - it appears identical to XZ431 http://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk ... php?id=113

The red and white Dominie cockpit had the letter 'K' on it, assuming this was unchanged from its RAF days, that would be XS737, but XS737 would have ended her RAF days in gloss black so some repainting would have had to have taken place! Also, I guess it could have been a simulator / cockpit trainer or a repainted non-Dominie HS125?

The Buccaneer was indeed XZ431 according to a plate on the rear. Can't help with the other two unfortunately.

Other people's pictures of the 'Dominie' have it as HS125 G-AVAI but I have no idea how they know this!
