The Vintage Aviator's incredible collection of original, reproduction and replica WWI aircraft take to the Masterton skies in commemoration of 'Remembrance Day' - the signing of the WWI Armistice and the end to the Great War.

Over 20 WWI aircraft will operate in a series of mock dogfights and handling displays, including debuts by two new aircraft, barnstorming acts from between-the-wars types and a display by The Old Stick and Rudder Company's WWII Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk.

This collection features some of the world's rarest flying aircraft powered by some of the rarest aero-engines in the world! Visitors get a chance to get up close to the aircraft, talk to the pilot's and gunners and appreciate the smell of old leather and castor oil. Take a free ride in one of the collections WWI vintage vehicles prior to the show, enjoy full commentary and grandstand or picnic seating.
