WHAT?????!!!! You don't know what Warbirds Over Wanaka [WOW] is? You've got to be KIDDING!
WOW is the southern hemisphere's preeminent airshows [and one of the BEST in the world!]! It happens every 2 years at Easter time over 3 days. It's FANTASTIC! Unfortunately, I could not make it this year. Fortunately a few people I know did, and I've been given some of the photos! Here's a selection of some of the photos. Obviously some of them are a little distant, but we'll cope with that!
Note: All photos (c) 2006 Gavin Weir [and thanks Gavin for sending them to me!]
Top to bottom, the pictures are:
