Flight wasn't based on a true story. The plane crash was very loosely based on a crash in Alaska in 2000, but that crash had no survivors unlike in Flight where most of the people on board survived. Regardless I agree it's a great movie and Denzel Washington was unsurprisingly outstanding as always.
