Wings Over Wairarapa - 2021 Dates Confirmed 26 to 28 February 2021
Thanks to New Zealand’s ‘team of 5 million’ doing such a fantastic job fighting COVID-19 we are now in a position to confirm the Wings Over Wairarapa Air Festival for 2021, albeit with some adjustments.
The uncertainty around borders and entry into New Zealand means we will be focusing on showcasing the incredible range of aircraft available within New Zealand and we are excited!
We are very privileged that Hood Aerodrome is home to the Vintage Aviator aircraft. Add to that, organisations from across New Zealand from Auckland's NZ Warbirds Association; to Marlborough's Full Noise; the North Island Yaks and aircraft throughout the century based up and down the country. We are in an amazing position with the quality of the air display we can offer.
We look forward to seeing you next February. Tickets will be on sale in July. Keep an eye out for our June e-news or sign up on our various social media channels for updated information.
Thanks, Jenny and the 2021 Wings Over Wairarapa Team Email: Info@wings.org.nz
