We are looking forward to a fantastic day at Omaka, featuring the first public engine runs of the John Smith Mosquito since the 1950s. In addition, there will be an array of classic aircraft, cars, warbirds and military vehicles and entry to both the WW1 and WW2 exhibitions is included in the ticket price. But wait, there's more - all ticket holders go in the draw to be 'co-pilot' while the Mosquito engines roar!

 

The Mosquito engine runs are spaced throughout the day as follows:

11am, 1pm (Ticket draw winner) and 2.30-3pm-ish. The last timeslot will be up for auction, so if you miss out on the lucky draw, do not despair! You can totally buy this experience and feel guilt-free because you will be directly contributing to the upkeep of this beautiful and rare machine. Cause these birds aren't cheap!

 

Musician Sam Merrall will be soothing the soul while the Omaka Cafe, JJ's, Lil Orbits, and Mr Whippy will take care of any hunger pangs. There's something for everyone!
