The skies above Tauranga City Airport will reverberate to the sounds of fast jets and some of the fastest land based vehicles in New Zealand at the second annual picnic type Tauranga City Airshow in January.
The 2016 afternoon and evening family fun event was so successful the organisers opted to hold the event annually, alternating headline aircraft and an associated event. On Saturday January 21st, 2017 the headline aircraft are jets, including the BAC Strikemaster aircraft flown by the RNZAF. There are also classic aircraft, sport aircraft, gliders and rc model aircraft expected. The RNZAF plan to display one of the new T6C-Texan ll trainer aircraft.
Fast land based vehicles will be on static display all afternoon, with races of some of the world’s fastest production Super Motorbikes, dragsters and hot rods on the 1.8km runway. The 2017 Nissan GT-R 35 is expected to be making an appearance.
