Gates Open 8am to 10pm

Airshow Programme 2.00pm to 9.30pm

Saturday is traditionally the busier day for Wings Over Wairarapa and this year we've added a never before seen Night Show to the entertainment. We've also shaken up the timings for the day meaning even more entertainment for your money.

Gates now open at 8am on Saturday morning with an extensive programme of ground entertainment before flying commences at around 2pm.

The Saturday Air Festival will open at 2pm with a fly past of a B-52 Stratofortress, never been seen in New Zealand before!

The air programme will then continue throughout the afternoon culminating with a stunning night show.

Please note: All Saturday passes include free entry to the Night Show.

The Vintage Aviator Hood Aerodrome based aircraft collection is without doubt the largest flying collection of flying WWI aircraft in the world. Many of these aircraft will not been seen outside of Hood Aerodrome in Masterton. This collection will feature prominently in the flying programme on Saturday. 

UK glider Team Airborne Pyrotechnics are the headline act for WOW 2019. They will perform both a day routine on Saturday as well as being the centrepiece of our Saturday Night.

We will also feature civil, military and agricultural aircraft, gyrocopters and helicopters.

As in past shows The Royal New Zealand Air Force will feature with a significant section of each days flying. This will include the T-6C Texan II, C130, A109, NH90, P3 Orion and Boeing 757. The highlight of their show will as always be the display by The Royal New Zealand Air Force Black Falcons aerobatic team.
