The Cessna A-37 Dragonfly, or Super Tweet, is a United States light attack aircraft developed from the T-37 Tweet basic trainer in the 1960s and 1970s. The A-37 served with distinction during the Vietnam War and in peacetime service afterwards.  Nearly 600 A-37s--attack modifications of the T-37--were built. This A-37, S/N 71-0790, is owned by the March Field Air Museum.
