Sorry I'm going to be really unhelpful by identifying everything but the one you want :(

(66-8380)/EN 80FTW T-38C white with tiger markings
__-____/90 T-38C checkerboard markings
(66-4343)/EN 469FTS T-38C green camouflage scheme
70-1578/EN 68FTS T-38C blue camouflage scheme
68-8350/EN T-38C normal scheme, camera ship

07-3897/9Z-D T-6C P-51 mustang scheme
95-3007/EN T-6A green scheme
(03-3689)/89 T-6A green scheme
02-3664/EN T-6A normal scheme
07-3883/EN T-6A normal scheme, camera ship

From the video there's no serial on any of the specially marked aircraft, at all! I'll keep digging.

The serial on special T-38s is invariably in the same place.
If you look at Matt Ellis' photo of "80 FTW":

the last four digits 8380 is at the base of the fin.
It usually only on one side.

The serial on 8380 was always highlighted as the 80th FTW aircraft - this is it in its original guise as a T38A in 1983

But the serial is not readily visible in this case on 69-7077
