Morris Maloney has outfitted one of his planes with a live video feed from the cockpit, and hereâ€™s a video he put together of his maiden flight over CORCS… He has video goggles which display the live feed as he is flying, enabling him to fly completely via video. Simply amazing!
This may be old news to some of you, but “One Six Right” is a great independent film that all aviation enthusiasts should see. This documentary tells the story of aviation through the eyes of the local airport, in this case Van Nuys, California and features some of the most beautiful flying footage ever produced.
One Six Right looks at the unsung hero of aviationâ€”the local airportâ€”through the life, history and struggle of an airport icon: Southern Californiaâ€™s Van Nuys Airport. Through aerial sequences and stories told by passionate pilots, air traffic controllers, historians and flight enthusiasts, including well-known faces such as Sydney Pollack, Lorenzo Lamas, Paul Moyer, Hal Fishman, Desiree Horton and many others. The film uncovers the history of the airport where Amelia Earhart broke a world speed record over its runways, and where Marilyn Monroe was discovered while working in its hangars; scenes from Casablanca were filmed on the grounds.
A historical perspective of primitive airplanes from the 1920s to the state-of-the-art business jets of today frames appreciation for the significance of all general aviation airports as a critical component of the communities they serve. Located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley, VNY is today the worldâ€™s busiest general aviation airport and contributes over $1 billion each year to the southern California economy.
One Six Right explores common misconceptions about general aviation airports, which are often criticized for noise pollution and viewed as exclusive playgrounds for the rich. The film creates an awareness of the threat to these community airports through staggering statistics of airports that no longer exist, and the rapid rate at which they are continuing to close: one per week in the U.S. These smaller and often forgotten airports are the foundation of the aviation industry, contributing to global commerce and the breeding ground of the pilots of tomorrow.
