As garden works on the grounds of the St Vincent de Paul care home were underway, the remains of World War II aircrafts were discovered, putting the construction on a brief hiatus.
The workers were working the land for an upcoming garden when they came across parts belonging to planes piloted by Italian, German and British militia.
Malta Aviation Museum director Ray Polidano said that the fighter aircraft most likely crashed in different areas of Malta before ending up in the quarry site.
Polidano told Times of Malta that the air craft were most likely studied by the British, stored in a hanger and eventually dumped when they were deemed useless.
Active Ageing Minister Jo Etienne Abela took to social media to state that the discoveries will lead to delays as the items will be cleaned and displayed.
The main parts discovered were Italian and German fuselages, with German letters still painted on them. Apart from this, a twin-engine British bomber as well as machine guns were discovered.
