On a recent holiday from the UK to Australia and New Zealand, one of the trips we took included the Omaka Aviation Centre. The tour guide said " This is one of the best museums of it's kind in the world !" I smiled and thought 'We will see?'
Well it probably is ! Peter Jackson spent millions on the huge hanger housing the tributes to brave pilots of the First World War. From the minute we walked into the museum it became obvious that it was something special. The set piece displays of action are truly breathtaking, and the snow scene of the arcraft crashed into the tree with german soldiers all around was a particular favourite of mine. The shere number of display aircraft, some in flying condition, is awesome. We only had a very limited amount of time on our trip,not really anything like enough, even a full day would only scratch the surface. If ever I am in New Zealand again it is one place I would like to make a return vist to. For the visitor contemplating a great aviation museum this you should NOT miss.
