Air Force Faces: Stories of service and sacrifice

Wings over Wairarapa is the largest aviation event in the North Island. To mark the occasion of the Air Festival’s 20th anniversary, Aratoi, WOW and the Air Force Museum of New Zealand are collaborating for the first time on a large-scale aviation exhibition.

Discover the many faces of the Kiwi airmen who have served our country during times of war and peace, from World War One to the present. Men and women, and even a few canine companions - all have their own unique story of service and sacrifice to tell.

Exhibition developed and toured by the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram, Christchurch.


A RNZAF School to Skies plane is on display in the Aratoi courtyard throughout most of February.
