American Made

Factual error: Barry Seal is taken with the guys of the drug-kartel in a yellow helicopter. There is an internet address on the side of the helicopter, half covered by the door, entirely inappropriate for the timeframe of the early 80's.

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie there are shots that appear to be historical of the 70's era. One shot contains several Boeing 737's lined up. These are however winglet-equipped, modern types that only have existed from the mid 2000's.

Factual error: When Cruise is walking away from the TWA airplane, the aircraft he is walking away from is an A-320. TWA never flew A-320s nor were they even flying yet when this story takes place. Further, the cockpit is of a 737-100/200/300 classic.

Factual error: In the diner scene, if you look out the window, you see a Publix supermarket with the current logo rather than the logo from the 1970's. And there were no Publix locations in Texas then (and still aren't). The light fixtures out in the parking lot are also not period.

Factual error: After being arrested, the brother-in-law tells Barry that it will be his 3rd strike and he will spend the rest of his life in jail. First 3rd Strike Law wasn't enacted until 1993.
