Remarks: The USN has chosen MLA again for its training after an absence of 9 months! "Dragon 07" is seen here on one of its various touch and goes. Thanks for choosing again Malta for your training and we hope to see you more often.
Remarks: Head-On view of RAAF 10 Squadron AP-3C Orion A9-755 Cn 5664, doing an orbit with No 4 engine shut down (and propeller feathered.) Not surprisingly, there are only 3 smoke trails behind the aircraft. 'Loitering' on three engines is a routine procedure which saves fuel and extends range. This aircraft was delivered in August 1978 and now wears an all-grey paint scheme. This photo was taken at the 2013 Avalon International Airshow on Sunday 03Mar2013.
