Valletta, September 26 (Xinhua)-The Malta International Air Show kicked off with about 50 aircraft from around the world, some of which graced the sky with aerobatic shows, so aviation enthusiasts look forward to the weekend. I was looking for.
The long-awaited air show spread between Saturday and Sunday for the first time in three years, first due to funding issues and then due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It ended on Sunday with a show by the Royal Air Force’s world-famous Red Arrows. The British aerobatic team visited Malta for the ninth time, last in 2014.
The crowd was also treated statically and on flight displays by flight crew from the Maltese and foreign air forces.
The Air Malta Association held its first air show in 1993.
Aviation enthusiast Bertu Grima told Xinhua that he was looking forward to the air show every year, but had to do it without the air show for three years.
He said his passion for aviation was passed on to his two sons, who were equally excited to be standing near a jet during a static exhibition.
Another aviation enthusiast, Vicky Bella, said no other show was as exciting as an air show. “These planes are simply great. I want to fly someday, but I have to be a pilot first,” she said.
