Team Yealands Classic Fighters
Thank you for joining us at the 2015 Classic Fighters Omaka Airshow in Marlborough. We had a thrilling weekend with a collection of stunning aircraft, brilliant pilots and aviation enthusiasts from around the globe, all contributing to make the 2015 Classic Fighters one of our best yet.
Classic Fighters Omaka is always known for its creativity and theatrical innovation and every year we see something that is completely new.
The 2017 show will be held over the three-day Easter weekend of 14-16 April.
Saturday and Sunday are the main show days with over 100 aircraft participating, together with mock airfield attacks supported by ground theatre and pyrotechnics. There will be something on offer to suit everyone, with musical entertainment, delectable Marlborough wine and food, merchandise stalls, a kid’s fun zone and a grand array of classic cars.
Gates open at 8.00am on all three days. The Friday twilight show commences around 4:15pm and on Saturday and Sunday the programme runs from 10am-4pm.
Please note that due to safety concerns the airfield will be closed to the public on Thursday 13th, to enable installation of infrastructure and equipment.
