When Sir Tim Wallis’s Spitfire crashed at Wanaka Airport in 1 996, the accident was reported around the world. This lion-hearted ‘Southern Man’, a legendary figure in the aviation, deer farming and business worlds, was suddenly fighting for his life: a life that had been filled with adventure, risk and success. The question on everyone’s mind was, would he recover?
Tim Wallis is known as the helicopter pilot and entrepreneur who helped pioneer our country’s deer industry. He was a pathfinder in what has been described as ‘New Zealand’s Last Great Adventure’, the recovery of live red deer from the Southern Alps and Fiordland. In recent decades Tim Wallis has had a passion for restoring and flying vintage fighter planes and is the man behind the phenomenally successful Warbirds Over Wanaka air show.
Tim’s life has been an inspiration to many. To him, ‘a problem is an opportunity’, and he loves nothing better than moving from challenge to challenge, and finding new ways of doing things.

Tim Wallis’s life story is told here by writer Neville Peat, who shares Tim’s great love of the outdoors. Winging lt\ is a whirlwind adventure story about an extraordinary New Zealander.
It’s dramatically illustrated throughout with photographs, maps, and highlighted quotes.
