Traffic is crawling this morning as more than 20,000 people make their way to the Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow.
The show is being held at Wanaka Airport from Good Friday through to Easter Sunday, but today and tomorrow feature the attractions sure to pull the biggest crowds.
State Highway 6 (SH6) near the airport will run as a one-way system from 9am - 11am and 4pm - 6pm to get people in and out of carparks smoothly, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) says.
During these times a detour will be available to those using SH6 who don't want to go to the airshow. More information can be found here.
From the intersections of the Tarras and Cromwell highways to the south of the airport, to the intersection of SH6 with Ballantyne Road on the Wanaka (north) side of the airport, the road will have traffic management controls.
This year's show is said to be wowing crowds with a wide range of international war planes and modern aircraft. The Catalina Flying Boat was the star of a special amphibious aircraft display along the town's waterfront.
A record four Air Forces are also flying at the airshow -- with crews from the United States, Australia and France joining the Royal New Zealand Airforce in the skies.
According to Met Service, cloud is breaking over the town, with a maximum temperature of 24 degrees, making for a clear day.
