As mentioned in Sunday’s column, I was at Ontario International Airport’s old terminal last week, and I don’t believe I’d been there other than a couple of mid-’90s flights. Here are a few photos that may bring back memories — in which case, please share them.
Three days before his landslide victory over George McGovern, President Nixon made an appearance at Ontario International Airport on Nov. 4, 1972. It was to be a star-studded event, with appearances by John Wayne, Glenn Ford, Jimmy Stewart and Chad Everett would be there too. Thanks to Jane O’Connell of Alta Loma for the poster image. (She recently sold the original on eBay.)
Were you there? If so, leave a comment with your memories.
