Don't know about "yesterday" (presumably 22 Dec 07) but 9G-AXA DC-8-63F of Air Charter Express (pretty much all white) is a regular visitor. I believe it operates to/from Basra (possibly via Ostend?).

Should have done a bit more research before posting.

9G-AXB (AXA's sister ship) was logged climbing out over Southern England just before 1300 yesterday (22 Dec 07).
This would match a 1240 (approx.) departure from Lyneham - matching your timings.

While not certain - this is likely to be your White DC-8.
