Edna Mode: It is completely bulletproof and machine washable, darling, that's a new feature.
When the plane is attacked by missiles, Helen punches a button on the cockpit console and a screen lights up that says "chaff". The next shot shows the rear of the plane with several burning items coming from it that are supposed to be chaff. However, chaff containers burst open into thousands of radar-reflective strips that are meant to confuse radar-guided missiles (see real chaff in the movie Air Force One). What actually comes out are flares that burn extremely hot to confuse heat-seeking missiles. While it might be suggested that we just never see the containers burst open, later in the missile chase we see the exact same items in view for a much longer time and they never burst open.

|Original entry||Helen's pilot call number when she is flying the jet is India Golf Niner-Niner, or "IG99" for short. This is a deliberate reference by Brad Bird for his earlier film, The Iron Giant, which came out in 1999.|
