The Alouette III will be flying the Malta flag to signal the beginning of the afternoon aerial display on both days of the show and shall be on static display as well, accompanied by the Hawker Beechcraft B.200 King Air Maritime Patrol Aircraft, a Britten Norman BN-2B Islander, and a Bulldog primary training aircraft.
Included in the varied Armed Forces of Malta static display will be the first ever twin-engined helicopter, the AW (AgustaWestland) 139 helicopter which has been added to the Air Wing’s fleet just a few weeks ago.
The Malta Aviation Society encourages the visiting public to chat with personnel from the Air Wing who will be by their aircraft and helicopters and eager to explain their varied missions executed 24/7 from their ramp on Park 7.
