Other NZ Aircraft Collections

There are several other major collections of aircraft in New Zealand worth noting and also several other website to draw attention to:

Ferrymead Heritage Park - Ferrymead Aeronautical Soceity
Based in Christchurch, this is the MOTAT of the south, and holds a collection including a DC-3, Viscount, Hudson, and a Mosquito under restoration.

Ashburton Aviation Museum
A great little place certainly well worth a stop on any tour. The collection now features a complete Harrier jump jet from the UK.

New Zealand Fighters Pilots Musuem

A fantastic collection of airworthy aircraft down in Wanaka, the home of the Warbirds Over Wanaka airshow.

Royal New Zealand Airforce Museum
After decades of destroying aviation history the RNZAF finally woke up to the idea of preserving its past, and set up this world class museum in Christchurch.

Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre
The new boy on the block opened at the end of 2006.
Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, Blenheim NZ

Kiwi Aircraft Images

Just a great information website.

Avspecs Ltd
Fantastic photos and updates of the first class work undertaken by this private restoration company. My main item of interest is the airworthy Mosquito project.
