    Remarks

    History:
    Formerly operated by the US Air Force, the aircraft was given to Vietnamese AF. The aircraft was one of two A-37 aircraft that were illegally imported into the USA via Canada. The aircraft were seized in 1989 by US customs and given to the Wings of Eagles Museum in Elmira NY. After a holding period the Museum was given permission to sell the aircraft. The current owner purchased the aircraft from the museum, and it is now FAA registered.  Customs provided a full release on the aircraft enabling the civilian ownership. To the best of the owner’s knowledge the aircraft has under 400 hours.
