Minnesota was originally picked for location filming, but there was no snow, so filming was moved to Michigan. See more »
While it is not certain, it is very highly likely that in 1990, the Windsor plane Col. Stuart crashed into the runway would be equipped with a Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS). If the plane was too close to the ground, the system would loudly sound off "woop, woop. Pull up, pull up." This would serve to notify the crew that there was imminent danger. See more »

For those who argue that Die Hard 2 is a desperate re-hash of the original... So what? I didn't expect a companion piece like The Godfather Part II. Die Hard was about a really cool guy in a really bad situation, and the result was probably the greatest action movie ever made. Die Hard 2 achieves status on its own just by being about the same thing. When so many movies want to be Die Hard but fail, why not just make another Die Hard? Director Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger)realized that because it's a sequel, there had to be more stunts and explosions. So there is. Die Hard 2 (appropriately called Die Harder) ups the ante a bit and has fun with a flurry of furious action scenarios. The fight on the wing of the plane is a classic in its own right, and Die Hard 2 stands alone as one of the best of the genre.
