NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

Knights of the Sky Exhibition at Omaka

Featuring Sir Peter Jackson’s collection of First World War aircraft and artefacts, brought to life in sensational sets created by WingNut Films and Weta Workshop.

Keith Caldwell, New Zealand's highest scoring 'ace' readies himself to leap from the stricken aircraft he has nursed back across the lines.

Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre presents the Knights of the Sky exhibition, featuring Sir Peter Jackson’s own collection of First World War aircraft and artefacts.

This story of aviation in the First World War is brought to life in sets created by WingNut Films and Weta Workshop. The theatrical treatment is both innovative and visually stunning. Scenes depict the aircraft in context, while the rare memorabilia ranges from beautifully crafted ‘trench art’ through to personal items belonging to the famous Red Baron himself.

This exhibition is open 7 days a week from 10am-5pm.
