Eight Royal Airforce Eurofighter Typhoons and two RAF tanker aircraft arrived in Malta earlier this week on a technical stopover en route to the Middle East.

Carmel Vassallo, chief executive of Malta Air Traffic Services, told MaltaToday that the planes had passed over Malta after the United Kingdom had sold them to a “Middle Eastern country”. Although he couldn’t specify the country, flight tracking data shows that one of the tankers landed in the Omani city of Salalah nine hours after taking off from Luqa on Wednesday, before jetting off to an as-yet unknown location earlier this morning.

Before leaving the island, the fighter jets were seen performing a low pass to salute Malta’s technicians.
