20 January 2015

The Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) put on a grand display at Wings Over Wairarapa Air Show in Masterton on 17-18 January.

The general public were able to get up close and personal with the aircraft including the RNZAF’s latest acquisition, the T-6C Texan II. Other aircraft included the ever popular Iroquois helicopter, C-130 Hercules and an A109 helicopter, with aerial displays from the NH90 and Iroquois helicopters.

But it’s not all about aircraft. There were also New Zealand Light Armoured Vehicles (LAV) for those who like their military capability closer to the ground, and static displays from the New Zealand Defence Force careers bus, RNZAF Museum and squadron displays.
