What the press say: Aeroplane Monthly – May 2017:
“Producer Tod Nicol ambitiously aims to document the RAF’s presence on Malta“. “Dreamy footage follows of aircraft carriers, Southampton Flying Boats, Shackletons, PR Canberras and the unmistakable features of Valetta harbour”. “The serious history of the RAF on the island is then related over 90 minutes, accompanied by archive film. The story is well told by voiceover and the recollections of veterans who served on or flew from Malta”. “Entertaining viewing”.
