WATCH: Have you ever spotted this quirky airplane in Luqa?
It has been abandoned for a long time

Caroline Curmi

If you're looking for an exciting springtime adventure, you might want to consider venturing into Hal Luqa and the surrounding countryside. Nestled there is an old airplane, which although has been left abandoned for almost 10 years, makes for a quirky and colourful landmark.

The plane, built in 1982, was in service till the late '90s and was then put in storage in Geneva, Switzerland. It was eventually leased out to Tassilli Airlines before ending up in Malta some time later.

Initially kept at Malta International Airport, the aircraft was moved to the grounds around Monte Kristo Estates, where it has remained since.

Although the aircraft is rusting away in the Maltese countryside, it nevertheless makes for an interesting adventure as well as some really cool snaps and videos, as these posts can highlight!
