Four Airforces

[21 January 2016] [997 views] [No Comment]

A record four air forces will attend next Easter’s Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow. The Royal New Zealand Airforce will be joined by aircraft and crews from the United States Airforce, Royal Australian Airforce and French Airforce.

The French Air Force debuted at Wanaka at the 2014 airshow when they had a CASA transport aircraft on static display. This time the CASA will put on a flying display on both days of the airshow showing off its capabilities.

The Australians have confirmed their participation and at this stage are looking to bring back their Hawk Jets to perform after a very popular debut at the 2014 airshow.

Meanwhile, the RNZAF has announced the first visit to Warbirds Over Wanaka by the new Texan aircraft which make up the airforce’s new display team – the Black Falcons.

The RNZAF has also confirmed the Hercules will be involved in static and aerial displays, the Kiwi Blue skydive team will perform while the NH90 helicopters will be showing off capabilities and also be on static display. It’s also hoped the RNZAF will be part of the free lakeside event late on Good Friday afternoon.
