David Jackson is based on real life scientist David Johnston. He died in the exact same way and uttering the same final words into his radio before the blast of Mt. St. Helens hit him, "Vancouver! Vancouver! This is it!" See more
The first "newscast" in the movie mentions the Iran Hostage Crisis as being one of the major news-makers of the day. It however erroneously states several figures. The movie states that there were 53 hostages, yet only that many were held to the end. In that newscast, the anchor also says, "Today marked the 129th day of captivity for the 53 American Hostages..." On March 20, 1980, when activity began, that would have actually put the real duration for the hostage crisis at 106 days. See more
