I've heard of this film, this film was based on the crash of Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937 and DHL Flight 611 that collided in mid-air over Überlingen in Southern Germany on the night of the 1st July 2002.

The crash resulted in the deaths of 71 people onboard the 2 planes; 69 (60 passengers (including 45 children) and 9 crew members) on Flight 2937 and the 2 pilots on Flight 611.

The investigation into the crash of Flights 2937 and 611 was the result of conflicting orders from the Traffic Collision Avoidance System onboard Flight 2937 and the Swiss Air Traffic Control as well as the main the radar screen and phone lines were down for regular maintenance.

The main characters in the film are based on those involved in the disaster:

Roman Melnyk (Portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger)- Based on Vitaly Kaloyev; a Russian architect, lost a wife and two daughters when their plane; Flight 2937 crashed, was involved in the search for bodies from the crash, was later sentenced to 8 years for the murder of Peter Nielsen on the 26th October 2005, later released on the 8th November 2007.

Jacob "Jake" Bonanos (Portrayed by Scoot McNairy)- Based on Peter Nielsen; a Swiss Air Traffic Controller, was the only air traffic controller on duty when Flights 2937 and 611 collided, was later stabbed by Kaloyev in front of Nielsen's family in the garden of his home at Kloten in Zurich, Switzerland on afternoon of the 24th February 2004.

Even the planes in film are based on actual planes involved in the crash:

AX Flight 112- Based on Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937; A Tupolev Tu-154, was enroute to Barcelona, Spain from Moscow, Russia with 60 passengers (45 were children) and 9 crew members aboard.

DH Flight 616- Based on DHL Flight 611; A Boeing 757-23APF Cargo Carrier, was enroute to Brussel, Belgium from Bergamo, Italy after a stopover from Manama, Bahrain with 2 pilots aboard.
