Warbirds cancellation rumour false

Warbirds Over Wanaka organisers are anxious to dispel any rumours this weekend's show has been cancelled owing to poor weather.

Show general manager Ed Taylor said one of his staff had received a phone call from someone in Nelson, expressing their sympathy that the show had been cancelled.

Mr Taylor was insistent that the show was going ahead as planned, starting with today's practice day events.

Weather in Wanaka was improving after rain overnight, and blue sky was starting to show through the cloud.
