Warbirds Over Wanaka – the preparations
Thought for the day…”The Wright Brothers created the single greatest cultural force since the invention of writing. The airplane became the first World Wide Web, bringing people, languages, ideas, and values together.” (Bill Gates)
It is almost time again for the Warbirds Over Wanaka Airshow, held around Easter every 2nd year. Today there were a few historic aircraft at the airport in Wanaka, so I had to stop and take a few photos. Sadly the weather forecast is not good for the next few days, but hopefully it will improve enough to get some better pictures. Ticket prices for the airshow have shot up over the last few shows, which might be one reason why the number of people visiting the airshow has gone down to about half of what it was previously. A few photos from today…..starting with the Vought Corsair…..followed by the Curtis Kittyhawk…..
