Welcome to Warbirds Over Wanaka 2020!  We expect to have another spectacular Airshow, with much to view in the sky and do on the ground.

Good Friday, April 10th is practice day and open to the public.  At 4.30pm we will also have a free lakeside event, at Pembroke Park, Wanaka.  Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th are Airshow days with the flying programme from 10am to 4pm.

All Trade stalls will be open on the three days, do visit the large marquees on the flightline and the ground displays of Classic Cars, Warhorses, Sport Aircraft and indulge in some local food and wines.

You will have access to a special viewing platform for accredited media at the Airshow as well as the Media hangar with power, wi-fi/broadband, more information on the Airshow and refreshments.  Please park your car in the Crossfire area (show your pass) opposite the main gate of the Airport.  Access is off Mt Barker Rd.

Our Media Manager and Team will be present to attend to the needs of all accredited media.  Once confirmed we will provide you with a digital pass to get you in the main gate, please then exchange this for your personalised three day media pass at the Media Centre.

Please bring your own laptop if required, we will have at least one available for use.

A media briefing will be held on Friday and Saturday mornings in the Media Centre.  All media releases pertaining to the Airshow can be viewed on our News Page.  We encourage you to register for our newsletters leading up to the Airshow, past newsletters may also be viewed at this link.
