Last month's Warbirds Over Wanaka International Air Show has been hailed as a resounding success.
The accolade comes after a post air show financial and operational analysis.
Warbirds Over Wanaka chairman Murray Cleverly says this is positive news for Wanaka and the surrounding area that the air show is in good shape and growing its demographic base of attendees
Mr Cleverly says many such as strong community support, large volunteer base, fantastic weather and hosting the RNZAF's 75th anniversary celebrations
He says an economic impact assessment completed in 2010 found the event was worth around $20 million for the area.
