First ever German Navy P-3 Orion
26 June 2013

After the German Navy had already confirmed its participation in this year's Airshow with a Dornier 228MR coming from Marinefliegergeschwader 3 (MFG3) based at Nordholz, the same squadron will also participate with its other aircraft type for Maritime Surveillance and anti submarine warfare the P-3C Orion.

The squadron has eight of these aircraft.

This maritime aircraft is tasked for long-range airborne surveillance and reconnaissance over sea and under water. Other missions also include search and rescue (SAR)
as well as long-range reconnaissance over land.

With a German Navy P-3C to add to our list of participants the organising committee of The Malta International Airshow is overwhelmed, since this aircraft in German Navy insignia will be participating in the Malta Airshow for the first time.
