Trivia: Movie Flight 2012 similarities with Alaska 261(leave comments with your opinion)


  I just saw the movie Flight with Denzel Whashigton a few days ago and i was baffled as to which real crash it could have taken its story from.It hit me suddenly and unexpectedly that i have seen a documentary from the famous Air Crash Investigation series(episode 6 season 1 "Cutting Corners" ) that had STRIKING similarities with the movie.The real crash was that of Alaska Airlines 261 back in january 2000.The crash of alaska had the jackscrew problem and as well two deep dives because of this problem with the second one being the final fatal dive.The last striking similarity that everyone will notice (if he has seen the movie and the documentary) is the last effort of the pilots to fly the plane inverted in order to reduce or stop the dive.This of course had little effect in real life but suprisingly saved almost everyone in the movie!Anyways great movie that i suggest anyone to see it if he had not done so already and also i would be glad to read your comments about this interesting trivial story.
