The museum as several hangars containing aircraft, including one containing beautifully restored Hurricane and Spitfire aircraft.  Also in this hangar is an audiovisual show of the Santa Marija convoy, which saved Malta from surrender during the siege of World War Two.

 

Other exhibits include several Royal Navy jet aircraft, plus a Fiat G91 and an English Electric Lightning.  Propeller aircraft are also well represented with a Fairey Swordfish, DC3 Dakota, Hurricane and Spitfire, among others.
