Additions in the Sunday Programme
29 September 2012
The Malta International Airshow is adding at least to more items in the flying display programme for Sunday in place of The Red Arrows that have now confirmed that they will be unable to reach Malta in time for Sunday’s afternoon display.
The crowds on Saturday were thrilled by the spectacular display of the Spitfire, Hawk, Tucano and the Italian Military Mission Helicopter that gave a very well co-ordinated search and rescue display.
MIA signaled the start of the afternoon’s event by parading the Fire Section infront of the public followed by a fly by of one of the Armed Forces of Malta Alouette III’s helicopter displaying the Maltese flag. AFM further showed the air wing’s capabilities with a fast roping exhibition by one of its Alouette’s.The newly acquired King Air in static display had to leave the static display as it was called out for a mission at very short notice. The Air Wing quickly replaced the departing King Air with its sister ship.
Towards the end of the show approaching the public from the left all attention was focused on Air Malta’s airbus 320 sporting the new colour scheme. There was a round of applause as the crowds could see Airmalta’s new colours in Malta’s skies for the very first time. The Airbus then taxied in to take pride of place on the static park.
The show tomorrow will feature additional displays as the Malta Airshow comes to the second and final day of the event.
