Classic Fighters Omaka, 2017

This is my report on the Classic Fighters Omaka Air Show for 2017. I had been to many Warbirds Over Wanaka shows in the past, but this was the first Omaka show I had attended. Omaka is a small airfield near the town of Blenheim at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Most of the photos and videos were taken with my Canon dSLR but I also used my iPhone 6S whenI needed a wider angle (note that the photos and videos on this web site are much lower resolution than the originals).
