Royal Canadian Air Force back after 17 years
07 August 2015
The Malta Aviation Society is proud to announce that The Royal Canadian Air Force will be participating in the Malta International Airshow. A CP-140 Aurora has been confirmed to join the static line up of varied aircraft from many different nations.
This marks the third time the Royal Canadian Air Force has participated at the Malta International Airshow, the others being 1994 and 1998 with a CP-140 Aurora.
The CP-140 Aurora is used by the RCAF as a “command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance” (C4ISR) platform, the Aurora performs domestic and international operations across a wide variety of disciplines.
This includes domestic surveillance of the Canadian Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans, as well as anti-surface warfare, maritime and overland intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), strike coordination, and search and rescue (SAR) missions.
The organising team of the Malta International Airshow would like to thank RCAF Special Events Plans Team, the Canadian High Commission in Rome for all their help and support.
We have just been informed that the German Navy has pulled out of this year’s event for operational reasons. Additionally, the Black Cats are still on track on performing at this year’s Malta International Airshow.
