5.0 out of 5 stars Why would you want to fly a small plane? November 13, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting movie for anyone interested in flying or learning to fly. This would be great movie to show to those who wonder why in the heck you would want to fly in a small plane. The movie also explains the importance of General Aviation airports and the role they play in our national infrastructure. It has great photography and was very well researched.

To say that this movie is by Sydney Pollack is a bit misleading. He had a very minor role in being interviewed for a few minutes but he obviously has a big "star power" name. It is really the work of the Director, Brian Terwilliger. I was fortunate enough to hear him introduce this film at the AOPA convention in Palm Springs. This is his first film and he really did everything he could to make this happen. Anyone interested in aviation would find this a great movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Six Right May 19, 2007
Format:HD DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful little "documentary" about the history of small airports in the USA, and how important it is to keep them open. Too many are disappearing each year, and once closed are lost forever. The history of the the Van Nyes, CA airport is explored as an example of the importance and success of a small airport.

I had a pilots license at one time. My husband saw this on Amazon and ordered it for me. I loved it! I just order a copy for my father for Father's Day. He was also a pilot and the proud owner of a Waco biplane.

I recommend this DVD to anyone with an interest in flying, especially of private planes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Aviation Movie November 11, 2006
By Michael
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a pilot or just someone who is fascinated by aviation this movie is a must see. It explains why I fly better than I can express it myself. A very interesting story about the evolution of an airport. It makes you realize just how precious these local GA airports are and how they are disappearing very fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal! December 3, 2006
By C. Berg
There is no more passionate bond between man and machine than of that that exists between pilot and airplane. This is possibly the only film to ever capture the strong emotions that pilots and aviation enthusiasts feel toward aviation. The stunning soundtrack and breathtaking cinematography create a synergy that is difficult to describe, but is undeniably captivating! The story, told only by interviews, and without narration, is about the importance of local airports as told by those who are most familiar. To those who care about aviation and its future, this film will be an emotional experience. After watching it, you are likely to have an urge to drive to your local airport to see what is going on there. This film is a powerful work of art straight from the heart!

4.0 out of 5 stars One Six Right January 9, 2007
As a pilot, and a history buff, I found this account of the Van Nuys airport very interesting and informative. The photogarpy, content and commentary were first rate. This documentary doesn't have to take a back seat to any other aviation film. I found it very satisfying on a number of different levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Will Want to Fly March 19, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my husband, the aircraft enthusiast, and fell in love with it myself. Lyrical lovely shots of small aircraft flying interspersed with fascinating historical information and perspectives on Van Nuys airport and perspective from pilots. The score itself is worth the price of the DVD. I found myself in tears by the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Pilots and non-Pilots alike... September 5, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful movie!

For pilots, there are many times when you will see a scene, nod your head, look at your (perhaps non-pilot) friend/spouse/signficant other and say, yes, this is what I feel when I fly. This is why I fly. When one of the pilots in the movie points to his logbook and says, "This is a love story," you know that he speaks for you.

For non-pilots, this movie might help explain the strange behavior that your pilot friend may exhibit from time to time. Why he looks up in the air every time an airplane flies overhead, staring at it like it's the first time that they have ever seen such a thing. The movie not only talks about flying, but shows people flying everything from WWII P-51 Mustangs to Piper Cubs.

"One Six Right" attempts to do many things. It is, at the same time, a portrayal of the romance of flying, a history of Van Nuys Airport, and an examination of the current sad state of airports. Personally I would have loved to have seen more flying... but then again, there's "One Six Left," a follow-on DVD which does have more flying scenes in it.

One more thing I have to mention: Miracle-worker Nathan Wang's incredible musical score. I have to say that listening to the music and watching the flying brought a few tears to my eyes, softy that I am. Fortunately, the soundtrack is available on CD.

If you know a pilot or anybody even remotely interested in flight, you have a sure thing in getting "One Six Right," "One Six Left," and the soundtrack CD.

My congratulations to Brian Terwilliger on a great project. I so enjoyed seeing the "Making of..." sequence on "One Six Left." Your perserverance is amazing!
