I had an extraordinary afternoon yesterday. I took a gulet “Airshow Cruise” from Mellieha, after a day on the Mistra Battery on Saturday, to be a little closer to events. I intended to take a few poor pictures, but I’m so glad I didn’t. My fellow travellers (including some locals) were, to say the least, entirely unfamiliar with the world of military aviation most of us love and inhabit so, since there was interest, I took it upon myself to provide a totally ad hoc commentary. By the time the Reds had closed a splendid afternoon (big shout to Soloturk and the Swiss F18), I had attracted quite a following. Afterwards, it seemed everyone valued and enjoyed my contribution to their day almost as much as I loved doing it. Particularly with the Red Arrows (the only act they recognised) under constant and increasing threat, it was a good feeling to share the passion we have for all things aviation.
