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.
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.
A great little place certainly well worth a stop on any tour. The collection now features a complete Harrier jump jet from the UK.
A fantastic collection of airworthy aircraft down in Wanaka, the home of the Warbirds Over Wanaka airshow.
