This book is a photographic record of the Warbirds over Wanaka airshows since their inception in 1988, to 2000. The photographs have been collected from many sources and are accompanied by text by Ian Brodie, the curator of The New Zealand Fighter Pilots Museum. An acknowledged expert in aviation circles, his text is informative and evocative of the atmosphere of these special occasions. Phil Makanna, who has contributed many of the air-to-air photographs for this book, is an internationally renowned American photographer of aircraft, who visits each show to record the wonderful and entertaining events that occur during the three-day extravaganza that is Warbirds over Wanaka. Warbirds over Wanaka has grown in attendance records from several thousand people to tens of thousands in 2000. Tim Wallis and his team are internationally recognised and respected for their organisational skills and the passion they have for the aircraft that Alpine Deer Group owns and invites to attend these biannual shows.
Coupled with the outstanding location of the show at Wanaka, audiences have been thrilled and amazed by incredible aerobatic displays, had appetites sated by wonderful food and have been entertained by various artistic groups over the last fourteen years.
