Dominie – the flying classroom retires

The word Dominie comes from Latin dominē, vocative case of dominus lord meaning a cleric or a schoolmaster (apparently depending on whether you are a Scot or not).

Anyway I digress. I would like, Dear Reader, to take you back to 1965. For it was then that the venerable Hawker Siddley Dominie, a variant of the HS 125 executive jet, came into service with the RAF. Some 46 years later, in January 2011, it goes out of service. So I thought I would trawl the archives and search out pictures of the beast (and a couple of long departed sister aircraft).
