Welcome to the home of Classic Fighters, widely regarded as one of the world’s best and most innovative airshows!
Classic Fighters places heritage aviation on display, in an action-packed weekend, amid the magnificent scenery of Marlborough during wine harvest time.
The 2013 show will be held over the three-day Easter weekend of March 29-31, with Friday night’s twilight show kicking off the formal entertainment, following a day of practice flying that is also open to the public. Saturday and Sunday are the main show days with over 70 aircraft participating, along with 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 5pm and on Saturday and Sunday the programme runs from 10am-3.30pm.
Please note that due to safety concerns the airfield will be closed to the public on Thursday 28, to enable installation of infrastructure and equipment.
