Factual error: When Magneto enters RFK stadium, a groundskeeper is lining a baseball field. RFK stadium did not host baseball in 1973, as the Washington Senators had moved to Texas to become the Texas Rangers after the 1971 season. In 1973, the only team playing in RFK regularly was the Washington Redskins of the NFL. In addition, the Paris Peace Accords were signed in January of 1973; so there wouldn't be green grass inside the stadium, regardless of what sports were being played there.

Factual error: The Mountain Dew logo seen in the stadium didn't come out until 1980, despite the film being set in 1973. The changes made in 1980 were subtle, but still distinct, especially the loss of the "wave" in the "D" and the smaller hole on the "a."

Suggested correction: The movie takes place in a universe where autonomous flying robots can detect mutant DNA. Military helmets ten years ahead of their time aren't out of place. It just suggests that secret parts of the military are using futuristic gear.

Factual error: Charles, Eric, Logan and Hank are seen flying in a Gulfstream II, tail number N540EA. This aircraft was manufactured in 1975. It didn't exist in 1973.
