Bonanza Air Lines disappeared in 1968 after merging with Pacific Airlines and West Coast Airlines to become regional carrier Air West. In 1970 the airline changed its name to Hughes Airwest after a take-over by the late Howard Hughes. Eventually Hughes Airwest was acquired by Republic (a highbrid of North Central and Southern) which was subsequently swallowed up by Northwest! The Bonanza Air Lines Fairchild F-27 suffered several mishaps in its career and this Emergency Insrtuction/Safety Card is a remaining artifact from that era. Click on Image for a close up look!
