Malta International Airshow 2013 highlights

Held on the Sept. 29 – 30 weekend, the yearly Malta International Airshow at Luqa airport, featured once again some interesting attendees.

Among the highlights of the 2013 edition, the C-130J-30 Super Hercules of the Qatari Emiri Air Force that had taken part to last year’s airshow as well, the RAF Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 and Tornado GR4, and the German Navy special colored P-3C.

Noteworthy, during the Sunday’s Finale, the Red Arrows display team made a flypast with the white and red smokes as a special salute to the Maltese people.
