ANZAC DAY 2018 – 25th April 2018

This year is the 10th year aircraft from the Biggin Hill Historic Aircraft Centre at RNZAF Ohakea have marked ANZAC Day with flypasts around the Manawatu/Whanganui districts. For the second year, our aircraft will be joined by aircraft from the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

Our 1944 Supermarine Spitfire will be joined by two Beechcraft T6 Texans from the Black Falcons display team. All three aircraft will be flown by current members of the RNZAF Black Falcons team. The Spitfire will be flown by Falcon 5, SQNLDR Sean Perrett RNZAF and the two Texans flown by Falcon 2, FLTLT Alex Joel RAAF and Falcon 3, FLTLT Dan Pezaro RNZAF making a truly ANZAC formation.
