Omaka Wings & Wheels Day -  28 June, 10am-2pm

26 June 2020

This Sunday from 10am until 2pm, we are hosting an Omaka Wings & Wheels Day. The Omaka flying community are bringing out their magnificent machines and they will be joined by some fantastic classic cars, all on display for your viewing pleasure. Please note that there is no formal flying program as this is not an airshow but it is a great opportunity to get up close, take some photos and if the conditions are suitable, we have no doubt the aircraft owners will be eager to take to the sky!

If you have a hankering to join them, there are several joy flight options available including Marlborough's very own Reno Air Racer, Yak-3 Full Noise 35, the one and only Avro Anson Mk.1 Gentle Annie and Foxy the Fox Moth. Please click on the links for more info and to make a booking. For anyone contemplating learning to fly, the Marlborough Aero Club (M.A.C) can make it happen and will be onsite offering advice and trial flights, more details here.

It's hungry (& thirsty) work bird watching, so we've enlisted the help of JJs Food Truck who will be onsite keeping us warm from the inside out. Kick off the morning with a 'Hog & Hen' and follow it up with a 'Flaming Chicken', 'Oceans 11' or JJ's ultimate Beef burger and a side of loaded fries. The team at Omaka's Comet Cafe have got your coffee and cake requirements covered and we'll also be serving up some tasty hot soup. As it's a special kind of a day we will have Yealands Wines and Renaissance Beers on sale accompanied by the sweet, sweet sounds of jazz duet 41 South!

Every museum entry on the day goes into the draw to win a flight in the world's only flyable Avro Anson Mk.1. Since you have already purchased the Omaka Flight Pass, as a token of our sincere appreciation you will receive two entries. The draw will be taking place at 1.30 pm and you must be here and ready to fly as you will be taking to the sky (weather permitting) straight away!

In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for some Marlborough sunshine, dress warmly and please follow our Facebook page for updates.
