The ‘Honouring The Past, Celebrating The Future’ theme for Wings Over Wairarapa 2013 truly captures the scope of this iconic event. Held over Wellington Anniversary weekend, the 2013 show will be the eighth Wings Over Wairarapa event.
Feature aircraft will include some of the world’s rarest vintage aircraft from the last century including original World War I aircraft alongside some of the classic’s from World War II. While these historic aircraft are always crowd favourites there will also be stunning displays of contemporary aircraft, and a tantalising glimpse of the future of aviation!
The second largest New Zealand air show, Wings Over Wairarapa rivals any show for display content and reputation and is now a significant event on the Australasian aviation events calendar.
Over 70 aircraft will be displayed during the show, providing a spectacular visual account of the history of aviation in New Zealand and around the world.
There will be exciting ‘must see’ entertainment on the ground also with mock battles, pyrotechnics, static displays featuring contemporary and vintage military vehicles, stationary and traction engines, combined Defence Force displays and interactive camp, children’s entertainment, movie props, a ‘new look’ trade site village and a Food & Wine Festival showcasing the best of Wairarapa hospitality.
