All good things much come to and end, especially so a good airshow.
This was not the best airshow I had been to, but certainly very good considering the weather and other factors outside of the control of the organisers! Value for money? Yes - where else can you get a whole day of entertainment [or aerotainment as the people at the IndyTransponder.com call it!], just a few meters away from the flightline, for as little as NZD$30 a day? Going again? You betcha!
The final display was a simulated airfield attack and defence - essentially a tail-chase for a bunch of aircraft and a final opportunity to see them before the end of the show. The highlight of this are always the explosions.
Thanks for watching and thank you for your comments. I hope you've enjoyed it! Feel free to drop me a line with your comments.
Plans for the next airshow are Classic Fighters at Omaka over Easter. Current plans are to possibly have an ex RNZAF Strikemaster [Blunty], Avro Anson, de Havilland Mosquito and a Yak 3 as drawcards! Some of these aircraft have not flown yet after rebuilds, but we'll see what happens!
