Metro G-CEGE Operator?

Sat Oct 20, 2007 4:20 pm

Today I saw Swearingen Metro G-CEGE at Manchester Airport. I was wandering who the owner of this plane is. A quick search gives me Blue City Aviation or Airlines. Can anyone confirm and/or provide more detail?

Thanks

Correct name is Blue City Aviation. They operate their Metro II mainly on freight charters for the automotive industry.

Thanks PlymSpotter,

This is what I am looking for. Is this their sole plane?

Not sure to be honest, they have a website, but it's not much use as half of it doesn't work; http://www.bluecityaviation.co.uk/ G-INFO suggests they only have one UK registered aircraft, but that doesn't mean they operate/lease others which are still registered abroad.
