Corrected entry: When the sailor is shot and thrown from the plane they immediately rush to him. While holding him in their arms the camera shows his feet are suddenly crossed. Difficult task for a dead person to cross their feet.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the women hostages are being released from the plane, they are forced to hand over all their jewelry. The woman in the blue blouse is still clearly wearing jewelry as she runs from the plane.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie where all the hostages have been rescued and they have boarded the plane with all the Delta Force crew, beers are passed out in celebration. While everybody is singing and drinking their beers, you can see one Delta Force member take a sip of beer, but either the sip was laughably too quick to be realistic or the can was empty.
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the movie Chuck Norris asks Steve James where his friend is and Steve tells him that he is stuck in the helicopter but the flames are too high for anyone to reach him. When Chuck enters the back of the helicopter there are not a lot of flames between him and his friend, certainly not enough to stop anyone from reaching him.
Corrected entry: Just after the hijacking, the camera takes three different shots of Washington, DC, buildings. It takes shots of the Capitol, the White House, and the Pentagon. The Capitol shot has a time stamp of 2:10 AM, yet the sky looks like it to be about mid-afternoon. The next shot is of the White House. The sky is pitch black. The next shot is of The Pentagon with the time stamp of 2:15 AM. The sun is shining on the side of the building as if it were around 8 o'clock in the morning.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the hi-jackers announce their intentions, all overhead compartments are wide open with no visible doors.
Corrected entry: The captain had plenty of time to signal the hijacking on the control panel yet he waits until after the hijacker enters the cockpit to hit the switch which attracts the hijacker's attention.
