The plane crash of the movie was inspired by a real air crash that took place in 1989. United Airlines flight 232, a DC-10, suffered a major hydraulic loss after an engine explosion. While attempting to land at Sioux City airport the plane came in too fast and at wrong angle, resulting in a devastating crash into the cornfields next to the runway. See more
While driving after the crash, Max checks his map and points to Highway 99 between Bakersfield and Los Angeles. However, he is obviously out in the middle of the Mojave desert and nowhere near either city. See more
