"Due to the uncertainties around Covid-19 at this time, the decision has been reached to postpone the Omaka Easter airshow. Yealands Classic Fighters 2021 will now take place over the first weekend of September, from the 3rd to 5th, coinciding with Father’s Day.

All tickets remain valid and automatically roll on to the new date. If ticket holders plan to attend the new date, there is nothing they need to do. However, a full refund is available should that be their choice. An email will be sent to all ticket holders to explain the options."


Yealands Classic Fighters Omaka is an action-packed family-friendly event held over Easter Weekend, 2nd-4th April 2021 in Marlborough. We'll be celebrating 20 years of spectacular flying, magical moments of shows past and magnificent machines both in the air and on the ground!

Marlborough's skyline and the Wither Hills are an unforgettable backdrop for an air show that has showcased and pioneered the preservation of WW1 aircraft alongside the speed and power of WW2 aircraft and beyond. For a brilliant weekend of spectacular flying machines, classic cars and award-winning Marlborough wine, food, music, fireworks and fantastic entertainment, join us at Yealands Classic Fighters Omaka 2021. 

Gates open at 8.00am on all three days. The Friday twilight show commences around 4pm and on Saturday and Sunday the programme runs from 10am-4pm. Limited sites are available for self-contained campervans in conjunction with a three-day pass. Get your tickets now!
