These textures are for the MAAM-Sim (payware) DC-3 and the use of texture template by Mark Beaumont. Capital Airlines was a regional airline serving the central and eastern portion of the United States. It was merged with United Airlines in the early 1960s, forming the largest US airline of that time. These textures are by Dale De Luca, with help from Wayne Tudor.

Capital Airlines started as Pennsylvania Airlines which was in operation in 1931. P.A. merged with Central Airlines (started in 1934) and on 1 November 1936 it became Pennsylvania-Central Airlines - and became the fifth largest airline in the country at that time. In 1946 PCA introduced Douglas DC-4s in an attempt to gain ground on its competitors. On April 21 1948 PCA changed its name to Capital Airlines. On November 4 1948 Capital Airlines made a 'first' in American airline history when it introduced a new low-fare 'coach' service - called the 'Nighthawk' service. By the 1950s Capital Airlines was flying Douglas DC-4s and Lockheed L-049 Constellations. Capital Airlines was looking forward again in the early 1950s when it ordered sixty Vickers Viscount 700 turboprops.

The first Viscount saw Capital service on 26 of July 1955 on the prestigious Washington to Chicago route with flights initially three a day. This new aircraft gave Capital a real gain over its competitors.

Capital Airlines ordered another 15 Viscounts to its great success, along with orders for another British airliner, the De Havilland Comet 4 and 4C long-haul jet. But these orders were canceled when the airline recognized it was moving too fast. It could not survive in competition with the 'big four' airlines and the rulings by the CAB which limited it. So in July 1960 United Air Lines took over Capital Airlines and its Viscount fleet making UAL the largest free-world airline of the time.
