Airline Captain comment
10 May 2005 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I've seen WRZ by Enrique Pineyro (whom I know from the Airline Pilots Assn. and I can say, being a retired airline Captain that what he depicts is real.My own experience shows the same acts of persecution and the same means of doing so but on another airline.In my case I was writing against my comrades who contributed with taking the airline to bankrupt when privatized.Saving the long distances between Enrique's reports which ended in the accident, many of the circumstances I lived personally till I retired.

I think it is a very good and realistic film.

Alejandro
