Crash (also known as The Crash of Flight 401) is a made-for-TV docudrama released in 1978. The movie recounts the true story of Eastern Airlines Flight 401, a Lockheed L-1011 TriStar which crashed in the Florida Everglades near Miami, Florida on the night of December 29, 1972 in what was the first crash of a wide-body aircraft. The film more-or-less follows the true events of the crash, although the names of key characters were changed and certain dramatic events were fictionalized. The crash sequence was one of the most authentic (and expensive) for television of the time, using multiple stunts, pyrotechnics and flyaway set pieces. Wikipedia
