An F16 of the Turkish Air Force as it zipped past me during the Malta Air Show 2021 a fortnight ago.

Luckily the flying display, which drew crowds of onlookers, was held over my hometown St Paul's Bay. So it was just the case of walking a few hundred metres to secure a good spot for the spectacle ..... we witnessed some great aerobatics from the participating teams.

I will be posting some other shots captured over the Airshow weekend.

Have a good week,
Joe Smile

Great shot Joe perfect timing ,,did you know in 1956 an english teacher was swimming with a Maltese friend in St. Pauls Bay when a shark took him he was never found ...local fishermen dragged meat to try and capture it they caught a few but not that one they were after....It was a large White..(Times of Malta followed the story at the time..!) Best Wishes Alan.
