If anyone could help me figure this out, I'd really appreciate it:
When I was little, we would go to visit my grandparents near Killeen, TX by non-reving on OZ (Ozark) from STL to somewhere in Texas, and then taking a second airline to ILE or possibly somewhere near to there. I was 5, so I don't remember much, but the other airline had yellow, propeller-driven planes and probably didn't seat more than 10 pax. The name "Rio" sticks out in my head - not sure if that was the name of the airline, part of the name of the a/c, or what. This would have been in the 1979-1982 timeframe.

Hmmm...to answer my own question, it looks like according to this: http://www.airtimes.com/cgat/usc/rio.htm
that the routing would have been STL-DFW on OZ, then DFW-ILE on Rio Airways (XO). That's the only possibility that wouldn't have required at least a two-hop on Rio.
Thanks anyway, all.
