About 24 minutes into the film, there is a shot of the Lockheed-1011 at the airport terminal. However, what is shown is not an L-1011 jumbo but a Boeing 727, a medium size commercial jetliner. See more »
As with the other user comment, Crash follows the real life story of the first crash of a jumbo jet, Eastern Airlines flight 401. Based on the excellent book by Rob and Sara Elder, the film, however, takes liberties with the facts. Most obvious is the William Shatner character, which must have been added as a narrative device but didn't exist in real life. Further, the films conclusion as to what caused the crash is wrong - not following the book nor the NTSB findings.
