For every looming airshow at Omaka, members of the CF team go the extra mile with friends on the field, around the country, and across the planet, to bring together a mix of aircraft and supporting theatrical equipment to provide a unique mix of attractions every second Easter. For 2021, we have yet to go too far down the track of locking in attractions as it is 'early days yet'. That said, this community also works very hard to support local owners and enthusiasts with our far reaching global networking of aircraft owners and sources, to help our local people to realise their heritage aviation dreams and this has helped to develop the resident Omaka based collection of significant show planes that support not just this airshow but other events around New Zealand.
At the present time we are very proud to be able to say that Omaka is the home to a broad range of representative aircraft that include the pioneer (pre-WW-I) era, fighter and bomber aircraft from both world wars, glamorous art-deco machines from the between the wars 'Golden Age' of aviation, and also post-war machines leading through to the jet age. Here are a few of the wonderful aircraft and some of the support equipment that are already based right here on the field at Omaka. In the months ahead, we'll add more images as the various projects are completed and new resident machines arrive. Then we'll add some images of those aircraft from further afield as we sign them up to be a part of the great event that will be, Classic Fighters 2021.
