place in 1948 with a more powerful engined Type 700 taking flight on August 3 1950. A stretched
variant named Type 800 was 3 feet 10 inches longer with even more power and a new fuel
system and flew on July 27 1956. It could carry 71 passengers so it soon was operating with
about 70 airlines and 9 militaries around the world. Production ended in 1964 with 445 aircraft of
all types produced.

Capital Airlines placed an order for 57 V.745 Viscounts in 1954. N7411 was built under c/n 109
and was the 7th V.745 for Capital. The first 9 Capital V.745’s were powered by Rolls-Royce Dart
R.Da.3. Mk.506 engines while the remainder were V.745D with Rolls-Royce Dart R.Da.6. Mk.510
engines. N7411 first flew on January 20, 1956 and was delivered to Capital Airlines on March 8,
1956 and given fleet number 330. In 1961 Capital merged with United Airlines and N7411 became
part of the UAL fleet and kept its number 330. Eventually N7411 was converted to a V.745D with
new Rolls-Royce Dart R.Da.6. Mk.510 engines. On January 11, 1969 the aircraft left the UAL
fleet and eventually became a derelict sitting outside near Salt Lake City, Utah.
