A-37B For sale

Recommended Posts







The aircraft was built in 1971 (s/n 71-854) and was part of the last shipment of A-37B’s from the U.S. to Vietnam. The aircraft was obtained from Bein Hoa Airbase in 1991 and shipped to New Zealand where it had a very complete restoration at Ardmore Airfield by Aero Technology. During the restoration, reconditioned engines were obtained from Vietnam and these are the ones currently on the aircraft. During the restoration, the aircraft was paint stripped. New rubber fuel bladders are fitted and a lot of the original but surplus military wiring, radios and armor were removed, along with the heavy anti-flak cockpit padding, which was replaced with a look-alike material. The ejection sets were also disarmed and the ejection hardware removed. The 7.62mm mini-gun was also removed.


A New Zealand Certificate of Airworthiness was issued in February 1994 in the Restricted Category- Air Transport not permitted, aerial work and private use, VFR only.

This Strikemaster also looks like an awesome plane to have.


Only a third of the cost of the Dragonfly!
