This one’s for the aviation enthusiasts! Possibly appearing at a European airshow for the very first time, we are absolutely thrilled to announce the momentous addition of the United States Air Force Boeing TC-135W in static display at the Malta International Airshow 2023!
From the exterior, the TC-135W looks exactly like the mighty RC-135 but has the sensitive electronics removed and provides pilots with an excellent practice aircraft. Only two training-configured TC-135Ws (serials 62-4127 and 62-4129) exist and are assigned to the 55th Wing at Offutt. In 2019, 62-4127 became the first aircraft to have ‘Baseline Charlie’ installed, which was the fleet-wide glass cockpit modification. To have one here during our airshow is truly special!
We are grateful and honoured to welcome back the United States Air Force at this year’s edition. For the latest news and announcements, visit our official website www.maltairshow.com and follow us on social media.
