From 1940 to 1942, supremacy of the skies above Malta was bitterly fought over by aircraft of the RAF, Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica. The RAF eventaully gained the upper hand, but not before the loss of hundreds of aircraft on all sides. The desperate air battles have since passed into legend - not only on the island itself, but further afield. Although the exploits of three RAF Gloster Gladiator biplane fighters named Faith, Hope and Charity came to epitomize this epic struggle, the reality is that many more aircraft fought - and were lost - in the battle over Malta.
