True story recounting the crash of Eastern Airlines flight 401, which crashed in the Everglades while on approach to Miami in December 1972. Accurate in many respects, the movie goes through the events leading up to the crash, the crash itself, and the rescue effort afterwards. Written by

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.
