WOW 2018 DVD recommended
Internationally-renowned Warbirds photographer Gavin Conroy has rated the DVD of the 2018 Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow the best airshow DVD to come out of New Zealand in more than a decade.
The Airshow DVD and book were released last month.
Blenheim-based Gavin is a regular attendee at airshows around New Zealand and the world. He is currently in the UK for the summer airshow season there.
“I thought the RNZAF segment was especially great and I’m sure it will inspire a number of young people to consider the air force as a career option. The footage from the Hercules is sensational.”
“I also loved the interviews with the likes of Sir Tim Wallis, John Lamont, Graham Bethell and John Romain and in particular Anson owner and pilot Bill Reid. Overall it’s a 10 out of 10 for me,” says Gavin.
The DVD was filmed and produced by Graham McArthur and his team at The Video Factory in Dunedin.
The 56-page book was edited in-house and features more than 200 not-published-before photographs provided by WOW’s official photographers including Gavin Conroy. As part of the event’s 30th Anniversary celebrations the book also features a special 4-page chapter looking back at the early days.
Both the DVD and book are available online www.warbirdsoverwanaka.com
