WA Fireworks Recycled From Cancelled Show

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 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 the 30,000 fireworks have been recycled from the cancelled show, with director of pyrotechnic firm Howard and Sons Andrew Howard saying the display will be Australia's largest.
