War­birds’ DVD now up for sale

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS - By CHE BAKER

The 2014 War­birds Over Wanaka In­ter­na­tional Air­show was an event not to for­get and those want­ing a last­ing me­mento can get their hands on the show’s of­fi­cial book and DVD.

Up­per Clutha writer Jill Her­ron said putting to­gether the record of the show was not with­out its prob­lems.

Sift­ing through thou­sands of pho­to­graphs and choos­ing the pho­tos to leave out proved to be dif­fi­cult but she was able to nar­row down the fi­nal se­lec­tion to 158 snaps.

This year’s book will have more va­ri­ety than past books with the ad­di­tion of new events to the show’s for­mat, in­clud­ing the Gi­ga­town Wanaka Jet Rac­ing and the World War I com­mem­o­ra­tion dog­fight on the lake­front.

War­birds event man­ager Mandy Deans said for the first time in a long time the book was a col­lab­o­ra­tion of lo­cal ef­fort which con­tin­ued with the of­fi­cial DVD.

Wanaka TV owner Antony Hansen said af­ter shoot­ing stills at the past eight air­shows it was the ic­ing on the cake to shoot the of­fi­cial DVD.

The book and DVD were avail­able on­line at war­birdsover­wanaka.com, from the War­birds and Wheels re­tail shop at the Wanaka Air­port, Paper Plus Wanaka and Cromwell and Whit­coulls’ two Queen­stown stores.

The book will also be avail­able at selected Whit­coulls stores across New Zealand in the next few weeks.
