What’s On: Airshow

Good morning Sunners and get ready for a roaring good time at the Classics of the Sky Airshow.

What could be better than strolling into Classic Flyers with a picnic basket and chair in hand and enjoying an afternoon’s flying display?

Returning for its third year, is the Classics of the Sky Airshow where you will see a range of aerobatic teams take to the sky in a performance over Tauranga.

Opening the show will be the popular Roaring Forties Harvard aerobatic team with its trademark smoke and snarly engines, and the Royal New Zealand Air Force Black Falcon aerobatic team.

Other show favourites include the Yak 52 flown by Mike O’Rourke, Graeme Bethell in his P-51 Mustang and Tiger Moth maestro David Phillips, who seemingly defies the elements.

There will also be a chance to watch military crew display tanks, guns and tracked vehicles make their presence felt.

Classic Flyers has also acquired yet another Grumman Avenger restoration project to be rebuilt alongside the current Avenger exhibit from Gisborne.

Joining them will be Brendan Deere’s Avenger from Ohakea so this is the first time the three Avengers have been together since the 1950s.

The Classics of the Sky air show is on today with gates open at 1.30pm and the air show starting at 3pm.

Tickets are available from www.eventfinda.co.nz and from the gift shop at Classic Flyers. Gate sales are available as well.

There is plenty of free parking available on site, with public access in Seawind Lane via the airport end of Jean Batten Drive.
