Quite a suprise for spotter's at Malta's Luqa Airport on the 13th of June, was the appearance of this UAE DHC.6-300 Twin Otter. Carrying the serial 2277 (c.n 672), she is operated by the UAE Army's Special Operations Command's 18 Group, out of  Sas al Nakhil. Was this just a maintenance flight or was it connected to the ongoing UN/NATO operation over Libya?

Another DHC.6-300 is DU-SD3 (c.n.765), but painted in an overall white scheme. She is used for Parachute training, aswell as for skydiving tourist's!
