I'm currently working on my private pilot's license and when I learned of "One Six Right" I was immediately captivated by its' message and the stories it told. Even though I live on the East Coast and have never visited our western states, I immediately knew that someway, somehow, I would see this film when it premiered. Several months later as I boarded my flight to California, I realized just how irrational I had become. Here I was, a normally logical pragmatic adult, traveling across the entire country, taking a week out of my life not to mention the expense, and for what? A movie? Yes, I must be insane. Well, hopefully not insane, just in love with flying. And, we all know the irrational things we can do in the name of love.
Looking forward to the film with such anticipation, I feared I had set myself up to be disappointed, but that was not to be the case. Everything was absolutely perfect from the amazing photography and music to the personal stories told throughout. Within minutes, tears were forming, then steadily streaming down my cheeks. I didn't care. All I could think, was that one day I'd set the wheels of my little Cessna down on Van Nuys' runway 16R and what a glorious day it would be.
If you have the opportunity to see "One Six Right" on the big screen, don't think twice, just go !
