Forget Valentines Day - on the 14th of November its the 70th anniversary of the American Pitts Special. If you like your planes upside down this is the event for you!

From 10am until 12pm the Pitts will battle it out in an Aerobatic competition that will see aircraft fly down to around 1,100ft above the ground. Aircraft will be displayed outside the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre and the competition will be held overhead the field. The Freestyle routines in which pilots get to fly whatever types of figures they like, complete with smoke systems commence at 4pm.

This event will be run by the NZ Aerobatic Club and hosted by the Marlborough Aero Club and the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre. Spread the word and we hope to see you there!
