HISTORY AND BACKGROUND
In the period 1943 and 1950 this park was part of the Royal Air Force airport with supporting buildings.
With the arrival of the Luqa airport facilities, this airport became superfluous.
When the runways were no longer used, car races were organized.
The biographical war film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi was largely shot in Malta in 2016 and is about the Benghazi attack of 2012, in which Muslim militants attacked an American diplomatic camp in Libya. A large film set was built for this in Ta 'Qali.
