Hans-Joachim Klein 'Angie':
Carlos scares me. Life means nothing to him.
Wilfred Böse 'Boni': He's a soldier. A leader. You're under his command.
Hans-Joachim Klein 'Angie': I'm a political militant. I hate armies and soldiers. I fight for a cause.
Wilfred Böse 'Boni': So does he.
Hans-Joachim Klein 'Angie': I wish I were so sure.
When Carlos and his militants enter the cockpit of the Austrian Airlines DC-9 after the OPEC siege in Vienna, the Captain of the airplane occupies the right hand seat. He also stays there during the flight. The Captain should sit in the left hand seat.
