An amazing experience!
11 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is an amazing experience for pilots and non pilots alike.

Having learned to fly at Van Nuys, the film has a particularly special meaning to me. However, you don't need to be a pilot to enjoy the film. The cinematography, visual effects and music are incredible.

One Six Right commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Van Nuys Airport. The film includes a restored collection of historical still and movie images from the Airport and over the San Fernando Valley. These images are integrated into this high definition film in a way that I can only describe as magic.

The film also focuses on the modern day struggle of the General Aviation Airport to survive within an urban environment and amidst a challenging economy. Highlighting this point, One Six Right contains an emotional sequence of Mayor Richard Daley's intentional destruction of Chicago's Meigs Field that will bring tears to the eyes of anyone whose life was ever touched by aviation.

The entire experience captures the modern and historical aspects of aviation, as well as the significant role aviation has played in the growth of Southern California's economy.

This is a beautifully done film that I'm sure I will see again and again.
