Poem recited in the final farewell at WOW 2014

I thought I saw my god up there
Through a gap in the clouds of a storm.
And I thought I touched my god up there
On my own, in the haze of the dawn

I thought I heard my god up there
Through the song of the engine’s bawl
And I thought I felt my god up there
Through the pull of  the bank and the roll

I think Ill meet my god up there
When my bonds to this earth are through
And I think eternity calls up there
Just where the clouds give way to the blue.

In The Air

This Airshow you will see some extraordinary flying acts with famous military fighter aircraft throughout the last 100 years through to modern jets of today. 

The Airshow culminates in a huge mock air battle complete with the best pyrotechnics at an Airshow in New Zealand. All this set in one of the world’s most stunning Airshow locations in the world.

On The Ground

When you’re not looking skyward there’s so much to see and do on the ground.

Check out the sport aircraft, warhorses, vintage machinery and vintage tractors, regional wines, market and food stalls, home-built aircraft workshops, aircraft for sale and aviation trade stands.


Two NEW features in 2014 are our WW1 centenary celebrations over Lake Wanaka on Friday afternoon April 18th and our Rides Day on Monday April 21st.

Ensure you read 'Airshow Programme' and 'Gold, Silver and GA ticket' pages to get all the details you need.....
