Something new has arrived in our WW1 Hangar. The Canberra team have been hard at work on WT436s fuselage with final touch ups being applied including the silver fern to the roundels. Today she was relocated to a temporary new home in the WW1 hangar until a more permanent location is organised in the main hangar. Watch this space. #canberra #restoration #nzwarbirds #warbird #avgeek #roundel #silverfern #rnzaf #onlyatardmore

POSTPONEMENT OF NZ WARBIRDS ON PARADE COMMEMORATING THE ANNIVERSARY PEARL HARBOR - 5TH DECEMBER 2021 Sadly due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 Levels, the size of gatherings, the unknown as yet government restrictions and requirements around event management, we have sadly made the decision to postpone our forthcoming NZ Warbirds on Parade commemoration show on Sunday 5th December 2021. NZ Warbirds Association is a charitable not-for-profit organisation and produces these events to raise money to help keep us operating and our aircraft flying. Cancelling an event at the last minute incurs a large loss of our existing funds having had to pre-pay many suppliers along with the cost of certification and regulatory commitments – so a last minute cancellation or postponement is just not something the association can afford to do. We know this will be as disappointing for you, as it is for us, however we are still planning to hold this event in the new year sometime, so please keep an eye out on our website and social media platforms for updates. The good news is our team are planning smaller scale events like our successful Tarmac Days and Hangar Talks which more easily put together, cost a lot less to produce and can easily be postponed if we need to. Thanks for your support and we can’t wait to safely open our doors again and welcome you in to our hangars. Trish Reynolds General Manager NZ Warbirds Association Inc
