Up to 30 WWI planes to fly at Wings Over Wairarapa

MASTERTON | Up to 30 WWI aircraft, some of which have never seen before, will perform this February at one of New Zealand’s largest airshows.

The unprecedented display from the Vintage Aviator World War I collection will form a major part of the Wings Over Wairarapa flying display on the 22nd-24th February 2019.

This will include an RAF Be12 and Airco DH.4, which have never been displayed in public before, according to the Wairarapa Times-Age. Organisers are also targeting a combined display featuring RAF SE5a and RAF Be2 biplanes flying with a unique RAF FE.2b fighter.

The aircraft are restored and operated from Hood Aerodrome, where the airshow is held.
