United States Air Force to Return to Malta

Another welcomed addition to our ever growing static display park, in the form of a familiar sight in our recent past editions – the US Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker, a favorite with many aviation enthusiasts.

This aircraft, based on the Boeing 707 commercial airliner air frame, is the US and various other Air forces aerial refueling tanker, which has refueled other military aircraft in the air, for the past 60 years, since its entry into service, back in 1957. It is due to be replaced by the modern KC-46 Pegasus which is based on the Boeing 767 airliner airframe. This makes the presence of the legendary KC-135 at our airshow even more significant.
The participating aircraft is one which is based in Europe, namely at RAF Mildenhall Air Base, in the UK.

The Malta Aviation Society is extremely grateful to welcoming back the United States Air Force at the Malta International Airshow 2017.
