We present an analysis of the UV (IUE) spectra of the central stars of Hb7 and Sp3. Comparison with the IUE spectrum of the standard star HD 93205 leads to a spectral classification of O3V for these stars, with an effective temperature of 50 000 K. From the P-Cygni profiles of CIV (1550 Å), we derive stellar wind velocities and mass loss rates of -1317 km s km s-1 and yr-1 and -1603 km s km s-1 and yr-1 for Hb7 and Sp3 respectively. From all the available data, we reconstruct the spectral energy distribution of Hb7 and Sp3.
