Thanks very much to everybody who participated or attended, and contributed to making January 23rd such a great event for everybody.

Classics of the Sky – Spitfire at Sunset was a great success on January 23rd with thousands enjoying the relaxed format of an afternoon and evening’s entertainment at the airfield.
Classic Flyers, the organisers of the event were intending to hold a second event on March 19th. However due to many connected reasons, including pilot and aircraft availability at that date, have made the decision to cancel that event.
The new format for the airshow was such a success that a decision has been taken to run an annual airshow in the future, instead of every second year. Each airshow will include a secondary event such as The Mount Truck Show which was included this year, and very well received by the public.

We look forward to our next event on Saturday January 21st, 2017. Watch this space for more information, including ticket prices and pre sales in November 2016.

Tauranga is the place to be when the Tauranga City Air Show fills the skies over the city’s airport again, providing a dynamic event for both Bay of Plenty citizens and visitors alike.

2.30pm - Gates open to the public
2.30pm onwards - Trucks on static display
4.00pm - Air Display starts
7.00pm (approx) - Air Display finishes

Organisers of the “Classics of the Sky”- (Tauranga City Airshow) are excited about a new format for the coming events in 2016.
There will now be two afternoon “mini airshows”, one in summer and one in autumn. Described as “family picnic type events”, the airshows are scheduled for mid-afternoon to evening, with static and flying aviation displays, food stalls and children’s entertainment. Air displays will start in the late afternoon and continue until evening.
Organisers have successfully run larger 2 day air-shows every two years since 2010, however it is felt that it is now time to try something different. Saturday, January 23rd is the date set for 2016.
The airshow will have a specific aviation theme. There will be a mix of classic aircraft, sports aircraft, military aircraft & gliders, along with local NZ Police teams & other displays.
Each airshow will have an associated event or special attraction – in January this will include the Mount Truck Show.
Previously held at Baypark, the Mount Truck Show organisers were looking for a venue with more space for more trucks, at the same time as the Classics of the Sky organisers were looking for an event to combine with the airshow, so the merging of intentions seemed appropriate and plans are well under way to provide the dual event for the local community.

Charity chosen to receive Truck Show proceeds.
Alex Salter, the organiser of the Mount Truck Show has advised, “ The Mount Truck Show 2016 is very excited to announce that the chosen charity for this event is the Trust Power TECT rescue helicopter !! We thought this was a fitting charity to support as we are also combining the truck show with an air show. The Trust power TECT Rescue helicopter provides an amazing service to people in need and are always on the look out for help.”

Information about the events will be available as it comes to hand. The official Facebook page and the website for the Classics of The Sky Tauranga City Airshow and this website as well as the Mount Truck Show Face book page
