Skyworks cancelled..



For the first time in 33 years Perth Skyworks were cancelled yesterday. Early in the evening a few hours before the fireworks were due to begin, as thousands of people found vantage spots along the Swan River, one of the small planes participating in the annual aerial display crashed into the river and unfortunately although people were there within minutes the pilot and his passenger didn't survive the impact. I wasn't there but I can imagine what a shock it would have been for spectators. Out of respect for the families the fireworks were cancelled.. it was the right decision. A sad end to Australia Day in Perth. Take care and stay safe...
