A-37 Dragonfly and the T-37 Tweety Bird
For the upcoming “Up-Close Aircraft Day” guests will see the museum’s Cessna T-37 Tweety Bird primary trainer along with its "Attack" version sibling the A-37 Dragonfly .
The T-37 is a twin-engine primary trainer used for teaching the fundamentals of jet aircraft operation and instrument, formation and night flying. Affectionately known as the "Tweety Bird" or "Tweet," it was the first USAF jet aircraft designed from conception as a trainer (as opposed to a modification such as the T-33). Its flying characteristics helped student pilots prepare to transition to the larger, faster T-38 "Talon" later in the pilot training program. Side-by-side seating in the T-37 makes it easier for the instructor to observe and communicate with the student.
The Cessna A-37 Dragonfly, or Super Tweet, is a United States light attack aircraft developed from the T-37 Tweety-bird basic trainer in the 1960s and 1970s. The A-37 had improved engines giving it a speed advantage over its training aircraft predecessor. Beyond that, it was much the same as the T-37.
Every second Saturday through 2019, a different aircraft is featured monthly during "Up-Close Aircraft Days" at the March Field Air Museum! Guests have the opportunity for a close look – sometimes climbing stairs to see directly into the cargo bay or cockpit, other times even climbing aboard. The new Up-Close Aircraft Days takes place every second Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Included with regular museum admission.
