Ashburton Aviation Museum
Ashburton has a strong aviation history, being a training base in World War 2. There were 50 Tiger Moths based there. The original tarmac and tie-down rings are still there to this day, these helped to secure the planes from Mid Canterbury`s strong nor-west winds. There are over 20 aircraft on display in the Two Museum Buildings and more in the work shop. The Ashburton Aviation Museum is well worth a visit.
