Malta Aviation Museum to participate in the static display
One of the most famous training aeroplanes, the Tiger Moth, remained in service with
the Royal Air Force for over 15 years. First introduced in February 1932, it was still
used as a standard elementary trainer as late as 1947 in Flying Training Command
and until 1951 with the RAF Volunteer Reserve in Southern Rhodesia. It was thus
the last biplane trainer in the RAF, being replaced by the Prentice and Chipmunk.
The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1938 and 1947
by Piper Aircraft. The aircraft has a simple, lightweight design which gives it good
low-speed handling properties and short-field performance.
Both aircraft you will see at the Malta International Airshow has been fully restored to
flying condition by the Malta Aviation Museum. The Tiger Moth is finished in standard RAF
wartime training colours with serial DE730 but flies with the Malta civil registration
9H-RAF and the Piper Cub is finished in standard wartime
USAAF colours and markings and flies with the appropriate Malta civil registration
We have been informed that the Tunisian Air Force has cancelled the planned participation at our airshow, due to the covid-19 situation in the country and the forces being heavily involved in dealing with the pandemic.
