It will be a spectacular show to mark 75 years of the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) tomorrow with aircraft from five international Air Forces taking to the skies.

Major international Air Forces including the French Armed Forces of New Caledonia, Republic of Singapore Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force, United States Air Force, and United States Marine Corps will take part in fantastic flying and ground displays at Ohakea Air Base.

The RNZAF's full complement of military aircraft will be on show to the public for the first time since 2009, including its latest fixed and rotary wing aircraft. A stunning range of civilian and vintage aircraft, including Spitfires and a Mustang will also be present to help mark 75 years of the RNZAF.

It's not often that all of the RNZAF's aircraft are on show, so it's a great opportunity to take a closer look and see the aircraft in action in the skies over Ohakea.

Together with the aircraft on display from other countries, it will make for a great family day out.

Gates open to the public at 8.00am on Saturday 31 March 2012, with displays beginning at 9.00am. In the event of bad weather, the show will take place on Sunday 1 April 2012.
