Peak Accommodation Wanaka is gearing up for a very busy Easter weekend!!  Warbirds Over Wanaka will be held on Friday, 18 April – Sunday, 20 April 2014 and we can’t wait to host some of the aviation enthusiasts visiting our town for this very special international airshow event.

Here are just a couple of the new additions to this year’s WOW programme that have got us excited!!  Check out their Facebook page for more snippets.

#GIGATOWNWANAKA JET RACING

“Jet racing is fast and exciting, both for the pilots and the spectators on the ground. Group racing around a 14-kilometre closed course yields speeds over 700kph, with maximum G-forces in turns, and the challenges of passing” says three times Red Bull World Air Race champion, Mike Mangold.  This sounds AMAZING and we can’t wait to see it for our own eyes here in #GigatownWanaka!!

WWI CENTENARY

A special World War I centenary celebration on the Wanaka lakefront on Friday 18th in the afternoon will be FREE for locals and visitors. The aim is to educate new generations about the role aircraft and New Zealand pilots played in the Great War 100 years ago. Bring your picnic rug down to the lakefront to see these extraordinary aircraft flying over Lake Wanaka.
