The A-37 ejection was around 1989 and the pilot's name was Lt. Sanchez.

This is one of the A-37s that collided that day(Oct. 3rd) during the Soldier's Day parade.

There's was another accident in San Pedro Sula a few years back when 3 technicians died when the ejection seat from an F-86 activated while being removed from the aircraft


As far as I know in 2001 there was no A-37B lost, two lost in 1987 and another in 1984
