There's an electric anticipation for the event's high-flying return, and we've got the inside scoop on the aerial acrobatics, the precision of the Kiwi Blue team, and the historic roar of warbirds like the Harvard team and the legendary World War II Yak 3 fighter.


It's a momentous occasion as we pay homage to the C-130H Hercules's final performance, a sight bound to etch itself into the memories of aviators and enthusiasts alike.


Feel the pulse of the community and the passion for aviation that this event reignites, as we recount tales of how Warbirds over Wānaka has left an indelible mark on New Zealand's heart. From the thunderous engines of the Dehavelin Mosquito and Mustang P-51 to the future of flight with electric aircraft and Rocket Lab's innovations, this episode isn't just a celebration of the airshow's legacy; it's a tribute to the pioneers of the past and the visionaries propelling us toward a new horizon.
