I believe that this aircraft was owned by Dorado Wings (from the registration mark). This was a Puerto Rico based airline that operated services around the Caribbean.

An overview of the airport on St Thomas showing a number of DC3's, a CV440 an Eastern Airlines Boeing 727 (these and Midway 737's were the only jets to use the airport) and, if you look carefully a C-46. The hangar on the right served as the terminal. The hill in the centre was in the process of being removed to improve airport safety.

It was intersting to watch these aircraft arrive as the runway was only just long enough for them. Interesting to watch, but even more interesting to be on board ! I arrived this day on a Prinair Heron which was far more sedate.
