Although marked with the correct registration N55VM and a close paint scheme, the aircraft shown in the film as the crash aircraft is a Douglas DC-3, not the Convair CV-240 that was actually involved.
True DC-3 airframe data is still under investigation.
NSTB investigators are walking among wrecked airframe wearing registration N343AE.
This is the remnant of Fairchild Swearingen SA-227AC Metro III c/n AC-554 built in 1983 and which crashed (failed to takeoff) without fatalities in 2002. The airframe was broken down for the filming.
