Perth Skyworks Fireworks to be Recycled From Last Year’s Cancelled Australia Day

Most of the fireworks that will decorate the Perth sky during Australia Day celebrations this week will be unexploded crackers from last year’s cancelled show.

The Skyworks event was cancelled after experienced pilot Peter Lynch, 52, and his Indonesian partner Endah Cakrawati, 30, died when his seaplane crashed in front of horrified families gathered around the Swan River.

About 90 per cent of the more than 30,000 fireworks have been recycled from the cancelled show.

The director of pyrotechnic firm Howard and Sons, Andrew Howard, said the display would be Australia’s biggest.
