Wings Over Wairarapa 2021 - first airshow of the Kiwi season

(1/4) > >>

KiwiZac:
I recently won a double pass to Sunday at the Wings Over Wairarapa airshow, which was my first airshow 20 years ago.
I asked the organisers and I was able to take my 12yo nephew with me for his first airshow.

Then they announced the USAF would send a B-52 from Guam for a flyover...on Saturday.
The organisers were kind enough to change our tickets to Saturday so we could witness the first ever BUFF visit to New Zealand.
And just before it arrived the commentators said the B-52 had enough gas for three passes.

We had a fantastic day and my nephew loved it, except it was HOT!
Unfortunately that evening new COVID cases were identified which meant changes to our alert level and cancellation of the Sunday airshow. Awful news as they'd put on an amazing display with record crowds and I've no doubt yesterday would have been as successful.

Here's some photos  8) Any questions feel free to ask!
