Terms and Conditions

WOW is unlike any other aviation event - the mountain scenery and amphitheatre provide a stunning backdrop to an extravaganza of action over three days. Over the three days you will see over 80 aircraft including warbirds, jets, helicopters, aerobatic displays and much more! 

One of the top four Warbirds Airshows in the world, we again bring you a stunning array of WWII and WWI aircraft along with some exciting modern jets. You will be so close to the aircraft you feel as though you can touch them. See also static displays of aircraft for sale and Warhorse military vehicles, re-enactors, vintage machinery, tractors and cars and a special display of sport aircraft. 

Taste wine and food from Central Otago, make use of the special children’s area and crèche. Parking is complimentary with a park and ride option for the disabled and elderly.



"WOW 2012 was a great display of how diverse aviation is, we enjoyed the crop duster display as much as the Warbirds, it's not something we see everyday. Great airshow, not to mention the beautiful little town of Wanaka! We are definately returning!"
