Malta International Airshow
The Malta International Airshow is the result of strong lobbying from the Malta Aviation Society for many years until approval was given to hold the first display in September of 1993. Held over the magnificent Marsamxetto Harbour with its surrounding bastions, the public was entertained to a spectacular aerial display culminating with the Patrouille de France giving their first display in the blue Maltese skies. Another show stopper was the German Air Force 'Luftwaffe' F-4 with its various low passes over the water.
Twenty one years have elapsed since the very first proper airshow held in Malta and the event has grown both in numbers as well as quality. Over the years, the Malta International Airshow has attracted many interesting aircraft including Israeli F-15s and F-16s, Czech L-39, Italian F-104s and Do-228, Ex-Israeli A-4 Skyhawks, US Navy F-14, EA-6B, S-3s and F-18s plus most of the European national display teams including the Red Arrows, Patrouille de France, Frecce Tricolori and the Spanish team Aquila.
The airshow is mainly run by members of the Malta Aviation Society who work on voluntary basis. Now held over Luqa, the only airport on the island, the Malta International Airshow is organised by a committee formed by various organisations besides MAS, including Malta International Airport, Malta Air Traffic Services, Armed Forces of Malta and the Ministry for Economic Services.
