The Rarest of the Rare.
A sky blue A-37.
by Ollie Maier.

These birds were part of a special test to see if this paint job would reduce the chance of getting hit by ground fire.  As you can see, it was a good color selection.

These pictures are some of the few known pictures in existence of a sky blue A-37.  You can pick up many a book on fighters and not find a single picture of an A-37.  A picture of it wearing these colors is really special.  Our sincere thanks goes to Ollie Maier for providing these.

At altitude and moving out.
This sky blue bird has leveled out and is "On the step."

This is a scan of a slide and the results are a little blurry, but the effect is interesting.

Most display aircraft sit a little nose high.  This picture displays the Dragonfly's attitude in action.  Flat and moving out.
