Non-MIACO DC-3s

This section originally listed DC-3s that visited Malta after MIACO closed down in 1985. I have now expanded this section to include other DC-3s sightings, irrespective of year. Aircraft have been listed in alphabetical order according to regions, then registration prefix, not country name. A registration in bold red text is a recent addition.

It is comprehensive, but, as with other data on this web site, is not to be taken as being the last word on the subject, as research continuously yields further DC-3 visits. Sources of information have been Malta Aviation Society records, and loan of log books by fellow enthusiasts.

Another source were the 89 DC-3s listed in the chapter “Airline Operations & Airliners in Malta 1946-1954” compiled by Carmel D’Amato and Mario Pace, and which appeared in the book Airliners in Malta, edited by David Spiteri Staines, published by the Malta Aviation Museum Foundation.

With Malta being a British colony, it comes as no surprise that, of the eighty-nine aircraft mentioned, 44 – just under 50% - were British-registered, from British colonies (Hong Kong) or had just obtained their independence from Great Britain (India).

Contrary to what happened after MIACO set up shop in Malta in 1967 – when the majority of DC-3s seen were US-registered * – in the eight-year period which the authors covered, no American DC-3s were recorded.

With the digitization of Air-Britain Historical Society’s magazines, and placed on DVD, another invaluable source for DC-3 sightings became available. (They also proved invaluable in other aspects as well, such as aircraft deliveries.)

Surprisingly enough, despite so many surplus DC-3s being available in the immediate post-war period, at least two DC-2s made an appearance. As the fore-runner of the DC-3, it was deemed appropriate to include them on this page, and are to be found at the beginning of the table. The remaining aircraft are listed by registration.

* Of the 46 different airframes known to have visited MIACO, a total of 37 (or close to 79%) carried a US registration.
