Two warbird aircraft owners are determined to do their bit to ensure the southern hemisphere's largest warbird Airshow returns to Wanaka in two years’ time.
Work has begun in Wanaka on restoration of an ex-Royal New Zealand Air Force Harvard aircraft which hasn’t flown in more than 60 years.
One of New Zealand’s most accomplished and respected Warbirds pilots has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
The effects of COVID-19 have been dramatic for many thousands of New Zealand businesses and at the forefront of that has been Air New Zealand.
The Southern Hemisphere’s largest Warbirds Airshow, Warbirds Over Wanaka, has been cancelled in the wake of the New Zealand Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Up and coming Warbirds pilot and Warbirds Over Wanaka Flying Scholarship winner, Bevan Dewes, has achieved a life-long ambition to fly the legendary WWII Spitfire fighter aircraft.
