Classics of the Sky 2020 - Media Release 2nd August

On Saturday afternoon January 18th, 2020 the skies above Tauranga will again be filled with the sight and sound of jets, aerobatic aircraft and formations of military and ex-military aircraft performing for the "Tauranga City Airshow Classics of the Sky”.

Helicopters will play a major part in the aerial activities - with a newly imported "Blackhawk" chopper making an appearance along with a great line up of local working and military choppers also strutting their stuff for the crowds to admire.

This year we have the return of the "Mount Truck Show" as a major ground component, with over 180 big rigs on display on the day.

There will be two TEXAN formation displays, old and new with the Royal New Zealand Airforce "BLACK FALCONS" and the New Zealand Warbirds "ROARING FORTIES" display teams both guaranteeing lots of noise, action and excitement above the airfield. 

Come on down for a late lunch - bring your deck chair, sunshade and a picnic or buy food and beverages from one of the many food vendors on site. We even have a licensed tent so those who would like an alcoholic drink while enjoying the entertainment can do so, but sorry BYO alcohol is not permitted.

There is plenty of free parking on site too.

Motorhomes are welcome to book and stay Friday and Saturday night.

Gates open at 1.30pm with the air displays starting at 3.00pm

Tickets will be available from Eventfinda and from the Gift Shop at Classic Flyers now.

Refer to our website www.tcas.nz for prices on ticketing and terms and conditions. 


A group of passionate individuals got together to achieve this dream of creating Classic Flyers to protect the rich and precious history of New Zealand aviation.
