    RON´S ONA PHOTO ARCHIVES!
    "You are flying on one of ONA´s Bicentennial
    Aircraft designed by one of our employees
    as a symbol of our participation in the
    celebration of America´s 200th anniversary.

    Ron sent the fantastic photo of ONA
    Bicentennial Celebration!

    In keeping with ONA´s role of promoting
    masstravel for recreational, cultural and
    educational purposes, we have named our
    bicentennial project "visitUS".

    Through 1975, 1976 and 1977 the aircraft
    will visit most cities in the US, Hawaii,
    the islands of the Caribbean and many
    European countries extending an ivitation
    to all people to "visitUS" during this
    "Celebration America" period.

    We hope this card will serve as a memento
    of your flight and a reminder of the
    wonders of a free and independent USA
    and its 200th Anniversary Celebration."
