The helicopter from which Hunsacker is shot by Mister Joshua is FAA registry number N230CA, meaning it's the same Bell JetRanger wearing a POLICE paint scheme that is shot down towards the end of the movie 'Blue Thunder'. See more...

Visible crew/equipment: Riggs handcuffs himself to the depressed businessman. They jump off the building but they're not handcuffed to each other anymore. They used plastic cuffs which could separate during the stunt in case anything went wrong. They break just as they jump, so they grab each other's hands to stay in contact.
Continuity: When Hunsaker's shot, his eggnog gets all over his tie and shirt. When the camera angle cuts to Murtaugh's reaction, Hunsaker's shirt and tie are clean and there is no eggnog pouring from the container. Also there is no hole of any kind in the glass door behind him in which the bullet made.
Continuity: The Christmas illumination on the balcony of Amanda Hunsaker's hotel room is arranged in three different ways: In the first shot, before she takes drugs, it is attached to the side of the railing. When she steps out, the lights are hanging about 10 inches below the railing, like they are later when Murtaugh searches her room. And when she climbs up to jump the bulbs are directly hanging down from the railing.
Continuity: When Riggs sees the car with Mr. Joshua coming he pushes the hooker away and starts running, but when he is shot at it looks as if he was standing with his back to a shop window. Accordingly, his bullet-proof vest has holes in the front, but then his red jacket has only holes in the back.
Continuity: In the scene where Riggs is chasing Joshua and is told by Murtagh to take a shortcut to catch Joshua, he is shown running in bare feet. After shooting at Joshua from on top of the freeway he then runs down the embankment and is shown wearing tennis shoes, but there is nowhere these shoes could have come from and he is never shown putting them on.
Continuity: When coked-up Amanda first looks down from the balcony, we see the ground from her vantage point. Were she to jump from this location, she would land on the huge awning below (the curved dark area). If she put real effort into jumping forward to clear the awning (and she didn't), she'd land just to the right of the lighted sidewalk, onto the grass. And if she were an olympic long-jumper and not high on cocaine, she might have landed on the red or black car parked at the curb. Under no circumstances could she have landed on the gray car, well to her left - yet she does.
