Well, add the AFM and you have a full Malta airshow flying display. If anything else gets added, be very happy!

The Sunday flying display was cancelled, anyone know why? We’re thinking about going next year assuming it will be a similar date and we’re just wondering about how logistically fragile the show is.
To be fair we’re probably going to Malta anyway but it would be nice to plan dates to catch the show👍🏼

Actually scrub that - turns out it was the weather and sea conditions which can’t be helped. So to save deleting a post, has anyone done this show before?
Famed for appearing to put my foot in it, read my post with the voice of Stewie Griffin if it offended you first time

Mr Sam and I went in 2021, you can read my review here: https://www.airshows.co.uk/reports/over ... l-airshow/

It's a good show but not without its flaws/quirks. I'd say that this year's freak conditions are just an example of really bad luck, of the type which can afflict any show.
Posting comments on an aviation-related chatroom, are ya? Looks like it an' all...
