He's just told his colleagues that a Chilean Air Force jet has arrived in the factory for maintenance and he's refusing to let it go through, in protest against the recent military coup of General Pinochet.
He's seen the images of people packed into football stadiums and the Chilean Air Force jets bombing Santiago, and now one of the engines from those very same planes is right there, waiting for inspection.
