The skies above Tauranga City Airport will reverberate to the sounds of fast jets and some of the fastest land based vehicles in New Zealand at the second annual picnic type Tauranga City Airshow in January.

The 2016 afternoon and evening family fun event was so successful the organisers opted to hold the event annually, alternating headline aircraft and an associated event. On event day the headline aircraft are jets, including the BAC Strikemaster aircraft flown as pilot trainers by the RNZAF. There are also classic aircraft, sports aircraft, gliders and RC model aircraft expected. The RNZAF plan to display one of the new T6C-Texan ll trainer aircraft.

Some of the fastest land based vehicles will be on static display all afternoon, with races of some of the world’s fastest production Super Motorbikes, dragsters and hot rods.

Gates open at 1.00 pm.

People are able to bring their own picnic or purchase food and drink on site. Classic Flyers will have a bar available to purchase alcohol. People are not permitted to bring their own alcohol on site.
