Callsign Blueridge?

Tue Apr 16, 2002 10:52 am

Currently at DSM I heard on the scanner a callsign of Blueridge. When it landed it was an erj-135 and United Express. Anyone provide me with some more info on why a UEX had this callsign?

Thanks

Paul

That is the callsign for Atlantic Coast Airlines, which is a UEX carrier.

If it was a ERJ-145 it wasn't ACA. ACA doesn't operate any ERJs, just J41s, CRJs, and Dornier 328JET. Strange.

I hate to say that if you can not tell the difference between a Jungle Jet(ERJ) and a CRJ then you have no business spotting. And you say it was at DSM. I was about to put my foot in my mouth and say we did not fly to DSM but i just remembered we did. Anyways Blueridge is our callsign for both UA and DL. Our old callsign for DL used to be Patriot but then we merged the operating certificates.

Thanks
