Classics of the sky air show

Some of New Zealand's best pilots will take to the skies next month for the Classics of the sky air show held in Tauranga

The Beech Texan T6Cs of the Royal New Zealand Airforce, imported in 2015, will return to Tauranga this summer to be put through their paces at the Classics of the Sky Airshow.

Among the excellent line-up of ex-military and aerobatic aircraft will be another crowd favourite, the ‘Roaring Forties’ Harvard (Texan) aerobatic team, with its trademark spinning propeller ‘snarl’ and the bark of big radial engines operating at high speed. On the ground making a welcome return to the airshow will be more than 180 big rigs on display as part of the Mount Truck Show.
