The United Kingdom committed further support for the 25th Edition of the Malta International Airshow. This time four further aircraft will be added to the static display line up.

For the first time ever during the event we will be able to see closely RAF Hawk T2 aircraft coming from @IV(R) Squadron from RAF Valley, while 100 Squadron at RAF Leeming will support the event with two Hawk T1 aircraft.

The Hawk T1 is also operated by the RAF Red Arrows, and 100 Sqn. While the Hawk T1 is used primarily in the advanced flying-training role, it is equipped to an operational standard and is capable of undertaking a war role.

The Hawk T2 is a fully aerobatic, low wing, transonic, 2-seat training aircraft with mission avionics that are representative of front-line aircraft. It is used to train pilots for Tornado GR4, Typhoon and Lighting II

The Malta Aviation Society organisers of the Malta International Airshow are delighted for the further commitment by the Royal Air Force.
