Aircastle and Aercap yo-yo as sentiments ebb and flow. Aviation supplier share prices

Aircastle and Aercap again moved violently, this time downwards again, as uncertainty surrounds the leasing market. Babcock and Brown, which also had a good lift yesterday, also fell, but more modestly.

Aircastle's aircraft portfolio at 30-Sep-08 consisted of 133 aircraft. Just under half are narrow body short haul aircraft. Some 27% are dedicated freighters. The lessor has 58 lessees located in 33 countries.

Rolls Royce, quietly in favour, continued moving upwards on the day.
