Avro Anson Joyride

In 1936 the Avro Anson MKI entered service with Britain’s Royal Airforce in the Coastal Reconnaissance Bomber role.

This aircraft is the last of some 11,000 built that is still flying today and is available for adventure flights based out of Omaka Airfield in Blenheim.

The flights take in some beautiful Marlborough scenery, but the main attraction is the opportunity to experience what it was like for the young aircrews who went out day after day to take the fight to the enemy, whether it be chasing submarines in the North Sea or bombing Hitlers invasion barges in the French ports.

The interior of the Anson has been faithfully restored to how it looked when the Anson’s were on front line service between 1939 and 1941 including replica machine guns and anti-submarine bombs.

All crew positions including Co-Pilot, Navigator/Bomb Aimer, Radio Operator and air Gunner are as they were when the aircraft was in military service.

Why is it Chuffed Worthy?

We paid a visit to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Museum and were lucky enough to be guided through the hangar where this incredible plane is kept, amongst some very neat other toys! Sitting in the plane & imagining flying in it was one thing, and we will be eternally jealous of whoever gets to take off & fly the skies of Marlborough in her!

Float & Fly Fish

Have you been dreaming about sneaking in a day of fishing on the river, but keep putting it off due to lack of inspiration or no time? Then join River Valley Adventures on the North Island’s beautiful Rangitikei River. Imagine you are there, casting your line into likely looking spots, a healthy river teeming with life.

An Experienced raft guide will take you down the river and stop wherever you think looks best to cast your line. Even try some casting from the raft for those hard to get places.

The only sounds you will hear is the water rippling over your feet, the murmur of the river, and your fly going out ahead of you.

Included in the cost for a full day of fishing on the river (for up to three anglers) is a full picnic lunch/refreshments, a raft as your transportation downstream with one of our experienced rafting guides, a lifejacket, plus a wetsuit and helmet if required.
