I’ve been meaning to watch the documentary “One Six Right” forever. It has been recommended to me over and over and over, but my laziness always ends up getting the best of me. Well, in early December a friend passed on the DVD to me, so there were no more excuses. I finally got around to seeing it, and all I can say is “wow!”
“One Six Right” is a documentary about Van Nuys Airport and overall the beauty of flight. It’s great if you like history or just like airport and airplane shots, as the filming is amazing. The movie is just filled with passion, as is evident from all the interviews with pilots, air traffic controllers, and other airplane enthusiasts.
All too often I lose sight of the beauty of flight, which is what first drew me to aviation. It’s easy to do given that I’ve flown over 250,000 miles this year, but now when I think about it I don’t remember the last time I just gazed out of an airplane window for hours on end as I did back when I started. After watching this documentary, though, I think I’ll find myself truly enjoying the beauty of aviation a bit more.
So if you like airplanes, aviation, and history, this one’s for you!
