Star participants at The Malta International Airshow 2012
28 September 2012
The Malta International Airshow is in full swing in its latest preparations for this weekend's airshow at Malta International Airport.
Most of the aircraft are on the ground except for the Red Arrows. The team experienced technical difficulties on their way to Malta and diverted into a military base in Sardegna. The team's engineers are currently doing their very best to have the aircraft serviceable again but it is not yet known if the Red Arrows will be able to perform in Malta.
The public will still be able to see the Spitfire, RAF Typhoons and Tornados, a NATO AWACS and many other aircraft, including a Libyan Air Force Chinook helicopter, marking the first-ever airshow participation by Free Libya in any airshow worldwide. Amongst other aircraft is a Hercules aircraft coming all the way from Qatar. The aircraft is expected to arrive later tonight.
The static display of aircraft starts at 10am and the flying display starts at 1.30 with the arrival of an Air Malta Airbus A320 at 1.30. The show ends with the Spitfire at around 4.30pm.
President, Malta Aviation Society
