Wanna Warbird?

Grand Pacific Tours, the New Zealand Luxury Coach Holiday specialist, is once again

associated with the largest Warbird Airshow in the Southern Hemisphere. This is the one

event not to be missed.

Starting in 1988 Warbirds over Wanaka is held every two years over Easter with over

80,000 people expected to make the pilgrimage to the South Island township of

Wanaka. The 2010 Warbirds over Wanaka brochure just released by Grand Pacific Tours

includes two options - an 8 Day South Island Escape departing on the 31st March 2010

and a more comprehensive 13 Day South Island Getaway departing on the 26th March


Both departures feature a 3 Day Warbirds over Wanaka Gold Pass which includes:

Grandstand Seating; Exclusive access to a Marquee; Food voucher; Souvenir Gold Cap

and badge; Collector’s Airshow Programme. Extensive sightseeing and pre-paid

attractions also feature on both tours, as well as return airfare, airport transfers, meals,

accommodation and much more.

Over 60 aircraft will attend the Warbirds over Wanaka International Airshow 2010. The

flimsy biplanes of World War I, the heroes of World War II, the fighters of Korea and the

awesome jets of Vietnam are all flown in exciting scenarios that recreate history right

before your eyes. Participation by aircraft of the Royal New Zealand Air Force

completes the scene. Feel the heat from huge fireballs and the concussion of explosions

as a pyrotechnics display to rival the best action movie combines with military vehicles

and an array of actors. 

Lake Wanaka is located right in the heart of the Southern Lakes and is the gateway to

the Mt. Aspiring National Park. Internationally renowned for its glaciers it is nestled on the

shores of an azure blue lake amongst the mighty peaks of the Southern Alps. The natural

amphitheatre created by these mountains provides a backdrop of stunning scenery for

the Warbirds Over Wanaka Airshow. 

Grand Pacific Tours enable you to combine the scenic beauty of New Zealand together

with one of the most exciting air-shows on the calendar with all the details taken care
