AFM inaugurates new aircraft hangar at apon-7

The Armed Forces of Malta today hosted an official inauguration ceremony by the Hon. Prime Minister Dr L. Gonzi at Air Wing base. After inspecting the Honour Guard, Brigadier M. G. Xuereb highlighted the fact that without close cooperation of other Government Ministries and the European Union such a modern project would not have materialised. PM Gonzi unveiled a commemorative plaque marking the official opening of Hangar 4. The ceremony ended with blessing of the plaque by AFM Chaplain Fr J. Meli. 

The AFM hangar project was funded through the General Programme Solidarity and Management of Migration Flows 2007-2013 with a co-financing rate of 75% EU funds and 25 % National Funds. (Source: Armed Forces of Malta)
