DC-8
Fleet Information

NOTE: ONA’s Fleet Information & Summary was way too complicated to do as a simple table, as the other airlines were, due to ONA’s bankruptcies & complicated evolution.
Thus, I have broken it down in 4 different time periods corresponding with these large changes in ONA.

1965-1978 The Original "OVERSEAS NATIONAL AIRWAYS"
