Yealands Classic Fighters Omaka is an action-packed family-friendly event and in 2021 it will be held over Father's Day Weekend, 3rd-5th September. We'll be celebrating 20 years of spectacular flying, magical moments of shows past and magnificent machines both in the air and on the ground!
Past air show themes have offered a tribute to the ANZACs, to women in aviation, to aviation in the movies or they have located the ‘action’ in various geographic theatres of war, such as North Africa, Italy and France. Each theme has provided the opportunity to showcase iconic aircraft in a different light, be they from the pioneer era, the Great War, the Golden Years of the 1920s and 30s or the Second World War, right up to current times.
Marlborough's skyline and the Wither Hills are an unforgettable backdrop for an airshow that has showcased and pioneered the preservation of WW1 aircraft alongside the speed and power of WW2 aircraft and beyond. For a brilliant weekend of spectacular flying machines, classic cars, and award-winning Marlborough wine, food, music, fireworks and fantastic entertainment, join us at Yealands Classic Fighters Omaka 2021.
Due to the uncertainties around Covid-19, the decision was made to postpone the Omaka Easter airshow until September. If you purchased your tickets for Easter 2021, your tickets are still valid and automatically roll on to the new date, there is nothing you need to do. Yealands Classic Fighters will revert back to Easter Weekend in 2023.
