As part of the biennial Warbirds Over Wanaka air show in New Zealand which is on this weekend, the team managing the airshow put together a small thank you to the Wanaka locals in the form of a free mini airshow over the picturesque lake that their town is named after.
What made this air display special was the inclusion of a number of water landing aircraft including a PBY Catalina. The Catalina landing into the late afternoon sun.
Before taking off again the Cat cruised past the thousands of Wanaka residents and visitors lining the shores of the lake.
While the Catalina was on the water other aircraft displayed overhead including a vampire.
Warbirds Over Wanaka is held biennial on the Saturday and Sunday over Easter. More information is available on Warbirds Over Wanaka website.
