National Geographic : 1973 Jul
What are you doing this weekend? The usual? Again? One of these days, you're going to get fed up with TV, crab grass, barbeque smoke, and that whole dull story. You'll look hard at your life style and ask yourself, "is that all there is?" Because when you're restless, there's always the usual. Like why not drive up to the lake? Join the chain gang on the high way for five hours both ways. Some fun, huh? Or how about a 16-hour pilgrimage to see the big game. Worth it? You decide not. Game's on TV, anyway. Yawn. Then one day you happen to look up from your hedge clipping and see the answer far above your buttoned down boredom. The answer is a Beechcraft Bonanza. Flying off to all kinds of freedom. All kinds of intriguing places. All kinds of adventure. "I'll check into that," you think. You do. "But what is all this weird stuff? Can I drive one of these?" You can fly one of these. And you're entering an exclusive fraternity in the very finest airplane made anywhere. By anybody. Your own personal Beechcraft Bonanza. A legend in our times. The most respected and sought-after single engine airplane in the world. You're surrounded by personally selected colors, fabrics, carpeting and appointments, marvelling at the quiet comfort and un believable scenery. And you're moving into a weekend of fun and adventure at 200 miles an hour. Hours before the rest of the world is off the freeway, you're in your trout stream or on the beach. And you're thinking there'll be weekends when you'll want to stick around home base. And just fly. For the fun and beauty and solitude of it. Next time you're staring at a dull week end, start out on the biggest adventure of your life. Head for your Beechcraft Dealer. Or maybe you prefer to go the route of the un coupon below.
