The skies above Tauranga will again be filled with the sound of jets, aerobatic aircraft and formations of military and ex-military aircraft performing for the “Tauranga City Airshow – Classics of the Sky”.

The Classics of the Sky 2020 will be taking place on the afternoon of January 18 next year.

Helicopters will play a major part in the aerial activities – with a newly imported black hawk chopper making an appearance, along with a great line-up of local working and military choppers also strutting their stuff for the crowds to admire.

“This year we have the return of the “Mount Truck Show” as a major ground component, with over 180 big rigs on display on the day,” say the organisers.

“Texan formation displays, old and new with the Royal New Zealand Airforce Black Falcons and the New Zealand Warbirds Roaring Forties display teams guarantee lots of noise, action and excitement above the airfield.

“Come on down for a late lunch - bring your deck chair, sunshade and a picnic or buy food and beverage from one of the many food vendors on site.

“We even have a licenced tent so those who would like an alcoholic drink while enjoying the entertainment can do so, but sorry BYO alcohol is not permitted.”

There is plenty of free parking on site too.

Motorhomes are welcome to book and stay Friday and Saturday night.

Gates open at 1.30 pm with the air displays starting at 3.00 pm.

Tickets will be available from and from the Gift Shop at Classic Flyers.
