The Warbirds & Wheels attraction will soon have the original car from the 1968 movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang exclusively on loan from owner Sir Peter Jackson to the Warbirds museum.
The fantastic flying and driving machine will only be on display at Warbirds & Wheels in April 2015, and coincides with the Easter school holidays.
During the month Warbirds & Wheels will raise funds for local charity the Upper Clutha Children’s Medical Trust, a worthwhile local charity that assists ill children and their families.
This will be the first time the car has been on display for such a period of time, having only been seen in public a couple of times at key air shows, and the streets of Wellington with Sir Peter behind the wheel.
There were several Chitty Chitty Bang Bang cars made for the film, but only one that actually worked. This is that car –known as GEN11.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was a musical movie legend, and for over 50 years has been played in homes around the world as new generations are exposed to the fairy tale delights of the movie’s story line and of course – infamous flying car.
