Trivia

From 01:35:50 for about 20 seconds you can see the fateful airplane accelerate down the runway with the flaps completely retracted. This is exactly what happened to the real WRZ flight and caused the takeoff to fail. It is a deadly practice and must have been staged exclusively for that scene to be shot. No doubt the plane deployed the reverse thrusters and brakes to slow down before the end of the runway after the shot ended. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the film, the mishap aircraft is starting its takeoff roll, you can hear the engines spooling up, ie increasing power. The scene then cuts away to the investigator listening to the black box recordings, then back to the aircraft already rolling. In the second sequence with the aircraft, you can again hear the engines spooling up. They should have already been at takeoff power. See more »

Airline Captain comment
10 May 2005 | by abastin1See 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
