Please see below a message just to hand from Jenny Gasson Event Manager Wings Over Wairarapa:

Tonight (Saturday, 27 February 2021) the Prime Minister announced an alert level change. Auckland is to Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country to Alert Level 2.
As a result of this, The Board of Wings over Wairarapa has made the difficult decision to cancel Sunday’s air show.

Our team is absolutely gutted, especially after an amazing day today, but your health and safety, and the health and safety of our volunteers, crew and pilots is paramount. We are also following Government and Ministry of Health guidelines.

As per previous information we have shared with you, the Wings team will be in contact with all ticket holders for Sunday’s airshow regarding refunds.


You may have guests, friends and family who will be impacted - here is a page with other good things to do in the region and offers for tickets holders . wairarapanz.com...

A large audience enjoyed a very special Wings event today - the weather is good tomorrow let's make sure our visitors have a great time here tomorrow.
