United acquired a number of Viscounts on 1 June 1961 as part of the
merger with Capital Airlines.  They were all 745D models so far as I
can determine, though Capital had at least one other model which left
the fleet before the merger.  Scaning the histories, it looks like all
of them left the fleet in 1968 or early 1969, so last service probably
was in 1968.
