Day 2          Saturday 16 April 2022  

Today we take the journey across to Wanaka for our tour highlight – the Warbirds over Wanaka Airshow. This event held biennially is the largest warbird airshow in the Southern Hemisphere and showcases some of the world’s best examples of WWII flying aircraft in action. A General Admission Pass to the airshow is included for the weekend giving us the ability to watch the airshow from the flight path (please note there is no seating available with the General Admission pass). There is the option to upgrade at extra cost to a Gold Pass. Warbirds Over Wanaka is famous for attracting a wide variety of privately owned Warbird aircraft along with their modern-day counterparts from the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF), Royal Australia Air Force (RAAF), United States Air Force (USAF) and French Air Force. While the aircraft are the main focus of the event, there are a lot of other displays on the ground which have made this show so successful over the past 33-years. Some of the aircraft already confirmed for the airshow are the Yak-52 aerobatic team, the Polikarpov 1-16, the RNZAF Helicopter NH90, RNZAF Hercules C130H and the RNZAF SSH-2G(I) Seasprite with many more to be announced closer to the date of the show.
