Brian Terwilliger's 'One Six Right' Finale

Print

On Sunday, I attended a special screening of 'One Six Right', a wonderful film made by Brian J. Terwilliger. (See: www.onesixright.com) Brian's film is obstensibly about the history of the Van Nuys Airport, but it actually reaches far beyond that and into a somewhat ethereal area, celebrating the mystery, joy and wonderment of flight. Beyond that, it has an important political message, that local and municipal airports contribute to our nation's economy and welfare.

The special screening represented the end of a bit of a barnstorming trip for Brian, who showed the film all across the country after premiering it at the Osh Kosh air show. In attendance at the screening were many notables from the aviation world.

On display were some amazing aircraft including an A-26 Invader, Clay Lacy's DC-3 in United colors, and some of the stunt aircraft from the film. 'One Six Right' sets a standard that we can only hope to follow with "Pancho".
