15/04/13

on arrival in Malta noted both AFM B200s (AS1126 & AS1227) one on the ramp outside their hangar and the other inside.

@ 0945z (1145 local time) noted a AMI AB212 over St Julien's Bay

16/04/13

@ 0900z (1100 local time) noted a AMI AB212 over Valetta Harbour

17/04/13

@ 1910z (2110 local time) noted a AMI AB212 over Valetta

18/04/13

between 1045z & 1100z (1245 and 1300 local time) noted a AFM B200 inbound to the airport. Believed to be AS1126 as AS1227 noted on FR24 returning from far afield during the evening.
@ 1200z (1400 local time) noted a AFM AL3 north of the airport
@ 1900z (2100z local time) noted a AMI AB212 over Valetta

19/04/13

on departure noted a AFM AL3 outside the hangars being refuelled and a AFM BN2 arrived at 0913z (1113 local time).

If there are any Malta spotters with SBS that can tie up the AMI AB212s, AFM AL3 and BN2 I'd be grateful (that's assuming they are mode s capable). Would be interested to know which 2 AB212s are currently in residence either way.

thanks to a member of the Scramble forum who has emailed to tell me that the AB212 on the 15th & 16th was MM81155 (c/s I1155) and the AL3 on the 18th was AS9315 (c/s AS9315 / AS15). He also said that an AB212 c/s I1163 was flying during the morning of the 18th, and I have since had an email from a Malta spotter to advise that MM81163 is currently the second AB212 operating in Malta.

The Islander on 19th has been confirmed as AS9819 (c/s AS9819 / AS19)

EDIT:

AB212 17th & 18th was once again MM81155 (c/s I1155)

B200 18th was AS1126 (c/s AS1126)

AL3 19th was AS9211 having recently arrived as c/s AS11

my thanks to all who supplied data and/or pointed me to various web sites.
