Great photo with a "measuring stick" to give one an idea of how large the island is. I think you might have mixed up your runway building materials though as I do believe they would use concrete instead of asphalt on a runway surface.

There's not too many countries in the world that you can capture in whole at 17 000ft. Malta is one of them. An awesome shot!

Well Done Roberto! Another great shot! And for any of you guys who might be doubting...runway 32/14 is in fact one of the longest runways in Europe.

WOW! This is by far the best aerial shot I've seen in my life. Must have been a very lucky moment for you to get the entire archipelago in great clarity. Even Gozo and Comino are clearly visible! 5 STARS!

Unbelievable take. Beauty of earth and a touch of aviation included. Recently I saw a BBC doucumentary about Malta in WOII, a heroic effort was made by the Royal Navy and Air Force (remember Hope, Faith and Charity! at least one of those a Gloster Gladiator with two wings WOI style!), but not least by the people of Malta themselves, they were bombed heavily, for some time they inhabited the most bombed place on earth even! but they held out, and their efforts were recognised by the British Royal House who gave Malta as a whole a royal distinction. Malta for the wind!
