Capital Airlines    Douglas DC-3    NC 33678             (c/n  4133)


                                     This has long been one of my favorite airliner photos (courtesy Capital Airlines).   It depicts
                                      "Capitaliner Morgantown" (fleet number 227) loading at Washington National Airport, circa
                                     1948, just after the airline changed its name from Pennsylvania-Central Airlines in April of that
                                     year.   The aircraft had been delivered new to PCA in 1941 but almost immediately impressed
                                     into USAAF service as C-48H-DO (42-38328).  Upon its release from the military it re-joined
                                     Pennsylvania-Central and then passed on to Capital, who sold it in 1959 to Interstate Airmotive,
                                     Inc as an executive transport.  .
