Notes:

This airshow was sadly marred by the crash and death of Ian Reynolds in his Chipmunk during a display routine. RIP

The nine Tiger Moths flew as the Diamond Nine team for the first time in New Zealand, and opening the airshow

The Wellington Westpac Rescue BK-117 helicopter performed the first ever helicopter loop at a New Zealand airshow

This was the first New Zealand airshow to see a glider towed aloft by a helicopter

This was the first time ten Harvards had been seen in the air together at once in New Zealand since the type retired from the RNZAF

The Dakota ZK-DAK lead a special formation marking the 50th Anniversary of D Day with Bill Howell, Bob Tarr and Morris Craig aboard, leading the two Spitfires flown by Ray and Mark Hanna, and the two Mustangs flown by Graham Bethell and Trevor Bland.

Special Fighter Pilot Guests at this airshow included:
Air Vice Marshal Johnny Johnson
Air Commodore Jamie Jamieson
Group Captain Desmond Scott
Squadron Leader Jim Sheddan
Jim McCaw
Johnnie Houlton
Johnny Checketts
John Pattison
Jim McAuliffe (who flew Spitfire TB863 in WWII)

The Roaring Forties team for this airshow were John Lamont (Leader), Steve Taylor (No. 2), Ross Ewing (No. 3), John Peterson (No. 4) and Keith Skilling (No. 5); but I am not certain which aircraft each flew.
