    Those were the days, I still remember the Phantom flying below the Valletta Bastions and take a vertical lift with St Luke's Hospital, those Luftwaffe were mad man. If not mistaken they were grounded on Saturday due to a crash in Germany and they gave an unforgettable show on Sunday ... if the Airshow will get back to Grandharbour would have been a unique show ...

    Yes it was a brilliant show but the airshow must remain to where it belongs the Airport!. Landing and takeoff is part of the show!

    Will remain the best airshow in Malta, the show of shows, hail those who managed to screw it out ... if it wasn't for those qerrieda probably airshow would still be so dramatic ...
