AviationWA was invited to fly in vintage aircraft formations for the Australia Day City of Perth Air Show 2016, held over the Swan River, Perth, Western Australia on 26 January 2016.

We also interviewed pilot Werner Buhlmann, who started the air show in 1993 and still plays a key role in organising it.
