"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 invitation to all people 
to "visit US" 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."
