20-22 November, 1992 - Auckland International Airport
The Air Expo was only the second airshow to be held at Auckland International - the other being when it opened. The other unusual aspect was that the airport continued to operate its regular services - so the air displays were scheduled around the commercial arrivals and departures.
I found the show interesting - my first chance to see a Kittyhawk or a Corsair - and there were the Russian aircraft too. Unfortunately I chose the wrong day to see the Avenger - and the weather certainly wasn't the best. But, any day at an airshow has to be better than not being at an airshow!
