According to a RAAF 75 Sqd. history source, the RAAF operated the Vampire F.B.9s initially from RNAS Hal-Far, Malta, and later moved to Ta'Qali (Takali).
Thanks for the clarification. I assumed (wrongly) that Luqa and Marsaxlokk were the only two RAF units on the island and as the latter was a Marine Craft Unit Luqa was the only viable base as home to the RAAF Vampires.
