Special feature: the most interesting pictures of the aircraft involved in Libya air war (Part 2)

After publishing the first Special Feature to celebrate the end of the war in Libya with the most interesting aircraft involved in Operation Unified Protector, many photographers sent me more images depicting some of the planes and helicopter that, for various reasons, visited Luqa airport as a consequence of the Libyan uprising and the subsequent air campaign.

Here you can find a gallery of images taken at Malta International Airport from February to October by Franco Debattista, Malcolm Bezzina, Mario Borg Olivier and Trafford Vella.
