Capitol operated many variants of the DC-8 through Gatwick during the early to mid-1970's.

The charters operated included American Tourists to the Britain, but also VFR (Visiting Friends and Family) flight to the West Indies carrying British Citizens of Jamaican origin to visit Parents, Grandparents. Other Capitol Flights into the United Kingdom were to US Bases on Military Contract.

Capitol Air Lines is often confused with Capital Airlines a totally different company and type of operation!
