Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the Terminator is stood at the broken window of the Cyberdyne building, just after he has shot the police cars with the Gatling gun, he uses a grenade launcher to fire a grenade through the side window of a police car below. Look carefully and you will see a rectangular package, presumably a small charge fitted by the special effects team, on this side window exactly where the window smashes to simulate the grenade smashing the glass a split second before exploding inside the car.
Factual error: There is absolutely no way the Police would send a helicopter to a crime scene with only the pilot on board. He has to fly the helicopter close to buildings, trees, power lines, and he may come under fire or have to manoeuvre out of any one of a number of crisis situations, and fast. He cannot possibly serve as an observer or pass on situation reports as well as controlling his aircraft. The fact that they needed an empty seat for the T-1000 is no excuse; he would have an observer on board with him.
Continuity mistake: When the Terminator saves John on his bike in the alleyway and the truck explodes in a ball of flames, the Terminator takes his shotgun out and cocks it to aim at an approaching object. After realising it is a flaming tire, he leaves. However, after stopping to relate his mission to John, the Terminator ejects the fully loaded cartridge (which sounds suspiciously hollow when it hits the ground) and reloads again.
Visible crew/equipment: After the tow truck plunges into the canal and John takes off on his bike, there's a shot starting low on the truck and craning up to windshield-level. You can see a reflection in the truck's paint job, next to the grille, of a large light and a crewmember.
Continuity mistake: In the Steel Mill scene, Sara has 8 shells. She shoots the T-1000 once (7 left), then she drops an unused shell (6 left), then reloads (5 left in theory, but there are now 6 on top of the gun). Later she loads the shotgun with the other 5 shells (one's disappeared, but it's back to what there should be) and recocks the gun, ejecting the other good shell. Later, she nearly kills the T-1000 by shooting him with 7 shells.
Visible crew/equipment: [Special Edition only] Shortly after the Terminator shoots up the police cars outside Cyberdyne, the SWAT team enters the building through the front glass doors. When the shot changes from outside the building to inside, the camera dolly and cameraman are visible in the reflection on the glass doors and windows.
Revealing mistake: After the T-1000 steals the truck and throws the driver out there is a big action sequence where the truck hits a lot of cars. In one scene the truck hits 2 cars which were both already stopped across the road front bumper to front bumper, blocking the road in the process, making it impossible for the truck to miss them.
Continuity mistake: The tanker truck is shown having two headlight lenses on each side on the front. During most of the chase the inside lamp is lit, but when Arnold shoots it with the grenade launcher the outside lens is lit. The next shot shows the inside lens lit again, but then when Arnold climbs on the hood of the tanker to fire through the windshield the outside lamp is again lit.
