We're excited to announce that the Romanian Air Force will be joining us on static at the Malta Airshow 2023 in the form of an Antonov AN-30! The Romanian Air Force AN-30 is a twin-engine turboprop military transport aircraft that is primarily used for aerial surveying and mapping.
The AN-30 has a crew of five, including two pilots, a navigator, and two surveyors. It is equipped with various sensors and cameras, making it a valuable asset for military and civilian applications, such as mapping and reconnaissance missions. The AN-30 has been in service with the Romanian Air Force since the 1980s and has undergone several upgrades over the years to improve its capabilities. The Romanian AF currently operate two examples of this rare and unique aircraft, and we are therefore thrilled to have it in Malta in September!
