Maylands Peninsula saw the dawn of a new era with the inauguration of its civilian airport. Spearheaded by West Australian Airways (WAA), the airport became a pivotal hub for aviation in the region. Sir Norman Brearley, the visionary behind WAA, propelled the airport into prominence, initiating services that connected Perth with Adelaide aboard the iconic de Havilland DH66 Hercules aircraft.
