A-4N Skyhawk
The most interesting aircraft that could be seen during the Malta International Air Show were actually not taking part in the show, but were having a fuel-stop on their way from Israel to the USA. Three former Israel Defence Force A-4 Skyhawks were heading for America and were already carrying civil registrations. But - as this N263WL shows - they still looked very military.
