Warbirds Over Wanaka Photo Gallery

Written by Cathy Siegismund
March 2002


The air show is set in the beautiful town of Wanaka, at the end of Lake Wanaka surrounded by mountains. The air show features vintage WWII airplanes. However it also showed several helicopter demonstrations, aerobatic exhibitions, precision flying teams, NZ Air Force demonstrations, jet demonstrations, and a very cool model airplane demonstration.
