Royal Canadian Air Force to participate at Malta International Airshow
18 August 2017

It is with great pleasure that we announce the participation of a CF-188 Hornet from the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Hornet wll increase the variety of static display aircraft at the 25th Edition of the Malta International Airshow.

The supersonic CF-188 Hornet, popularly known as the CF-18, can engage both ground and aerial targets. Its twin engines generate enough thrust to lift 24 full-size pick-up trucks off the ground.
As the Royal Canadian Air Force’s frontline multi-role fighter, the modernized CF-188 is used primarily for air defence, air superiority and tactical support.
After successful Canadian participation in the 1994,1998 and 2015 editions this year will see the debut of a CF-188 Hornet on our shores, a great edition to the airshow.
The Malta Aviation Society (MAS) organisers of the Malta International Airshow would like to publicly thank the Royal Canadian Air Force for confirming their participation once again in Malta. The MAS team are doing their utmost to keep confirming aircraft for both the flying and static display.
