"The aircraft, owned by a Wanaka pilot, had touched down on the grass runway but soon afterwards a wing clipped a stationary cherry picker near the grass runway, in use for the airshow," Warbirds over Wanaka said in a statement.

"The aircraft suffered damage to one wing. The pilot was not injured."

The Warbirds over Wanaka show was delayed by 35 minutes. Around 25,000 people are at the annual show.
