ONA WEBSTARS!

Happy Birthday Mario 2013!
Ras Nielsen and Mario Sotolongo
at AirVenture 2013 in front of
Ras´ Twin Beech. Mario flew his
Beech Bonanza back to Michigan
to celebrate his birthday 2nd August!


Winner of Concours d´Elegance!
Besides pretty airplanes,
Mario also loves pretty cars!


We have flight planner programs 
that will give you everything you 
need, file a flight plan, program 
the GPS and you are ready to go.  
I fly to airports near where I want 
to go, as an example, Cleveland 
Burke Lakefront Airport is only a 
5 minute walk to the Rock n' Roll 
Hall of Fame, Cleveland Convention 
Center, the Science Center, etc.
I went to the Oshkosh Air Show, 
the weather was terrible the first 
couple of days with lots of rain, 
so I waited for three days before 
I went, I did not enter my airplane 
for an Award this year. Last 
Saturday I won First Place for the 
Best Car in Class Award for my rare 
1967 Jaguar at the Concours 
d' Elegance at the Jaguar Club 
Convention.  It was easy, I was the 
only entry in my class... still 
the car looks great!

near where I keep my aircraft.

ONA was the original owner and since it
has flown by different carriers.

ONA ELECTRAS


ONA Electras parked at
Willow Run Airport
in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

They were operated by Zantop
Airlines
before they went out of
business. The engines are gone
and eventually they will be reduced
to scrap metal. ONA flew a lot of
cargo for the auto industry out
of YIP with the Electras and the
DC-9s.
