Warbirds Over Wanaka’s Condolences
Our heartfelt condolences go to Matt Wallis’s wife, Alice, their young son Arthur and the wider Wallis family at their loss, says John Gilks, Chairman of the Warbirds over Wanaka Community Trust.
The Wallis family are highly respected in the Wanaka community. Matt’s father, Sir Tim Wallis founded the Warbirds Over Wanaka Airshow 30 years ago and all family members have been strong supporters of the event ever since.
This has been a tragic accident and Matt will be sorely missed by a large number of people in the aviation industry and the wider Wanaka community.
