We take a trip to Ta' Qali, Malta and we'll see some photos of the general area, the souvenir shops, the glass blowing stores, the sAircraft Museum, the American Embassy, the Trade Fair, Flea Market and a few photos of Christmas time at Ta' Qali. Photos by Choy Hong (Jasmine) Grech.

Music, we chose Silk and Velvet Waltz (Samt und Seideby) by Austrian Composer Carl Michael Ziehrer and a medley of Classical music played by André Rieu.

TA' QALI

Ta' Qali village is a wide open space in the middle of Malta containing the national stadium, Ta' Qali National Park and a national vegetable market which is locally known as the Pitkalija. The nearby hill top town of Mtarfa is in the background.

Shortly before World War II, the area was used to build a military aerodrome and a station for the Royal Air Force (RAF), called RAF "Ta Kali". RAF Ta Kali was operational throughout the war and continued to be used as an RAF airfield until the mid 1950s. Latterly, U.K.-based squadrons visited Ta Kali as part of their annual proficiency trainng.

Since the departure of the RAF, the location has been transformed into a recreational area. The area is considered by some in Malta as an ideal place to go for a picnic and spend weekend afternoons. The National Park also includes an amphitheatre. A number of international concerts were staged at the park, including artists as diverse as Status Quo, Deep Purple, Fish, Iron Maiden, Demis Roussos, Alannah Myles, Bonnie Tyler and many others. International artists such as Riccardo Fogli have also planted their own trees in the Park.

The newly built U.S. Embassy stands across from the Ta'Qali National Park. In July, 2011 the embassy relocated to Ta'Qali from Floriana where it stood for nearly fifty years.

Ta' Qali still fulfils part of its former role as an airfield but the only aircraft that take off from the greatly diminished landing strip are scale models, whose owners make part of a club located in Ta' Qali.

Today, many of the military huts and buildings have been converted into workshops where Maltese craftsmen produce their handiwork, and the Ta' Qali Crafts Village has become an important tourist attraction. There is also the Malta Aviation museum where one can find different types of aircraft related to Maltese aviation history.
