                                      Although not bearing airline titles, this ex C-45 was one of the aircraft acquired by Kingsley G.
                                      Morse when he acquired the assets of Mid-Hudson Airlines of Poughkeepsie, NY in 1955.
                                      With this machine and one other C-45, plus an Aero Commander, Morse opened up a route
                                      from Poughkeepsie to New York City in July 1966, changing the name from Mid-Hudson to
                                      Command Airways, a moniker he hoped would  inspire confidence in the new venture.  It did,
                                      and the commuter airline grew.
