Corrected entry: Near the beginning, where the helicopter picks up a guy with a bike from a sandy area, as it lands, a lot of sand is thrown up. When you see the shot from the inside if the helicopter of the guy with the bike, you can hear the helicopter is still running but no sand is thrown up behind him. (00:12:19)
Corrected entry: Throughout the film, NCOs are referred to as 'Sir' (more obvious when subtitles are on), but only officers in the army are called 'Sir'. NCOs are referred to as 'Sergeant' up to 'Sergeant Major', never 'Sir'.
Corrected entry: Helo pilots are on the right side of the aircraft and copilots on the left. This is shown wrong in the movie.
Corrected entry: When some of the soldiers are firing their M-16s, they don't seem to produce any recoil. M-16s do have low-to-moderate recoil. This happens multiple times throughout the movie.
Corrected entry: When Durant's Blackhawk went down there is only one crew chief, but there were actually two. Also, everyone on board the crash survived the fall, but were later killed when the Somali militia came except for Durant.
Corrected entry: During the scene towards the beginning of the film when the rangers are taking target practice you see one guy take out his pistol and start walking up to his target firing at it. Apparently this guy has a death wish because if you look behind him you see the rest of the rangers continue to fire their rifles away while this idiot is walking right into the path of bullets.

Corrected entry: Sgt Everman's chalk four, which in the movie made it to the first crash site, never even got there that night. They initially moved out on foot, then got picked up by the "Lost Convoy" and got stuck on it. They went back to the base and moved out to rescue everyone. Big oops on the producer/director's part.
Corrected entry: Blackburn did not fall from the rope by an RPG almost hitting the Blackhawk helicopter. In actuality he just missed the rope period.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the ODA-D sergeant is cut in half and thrown from the 5-Ton Truck, it first shows one soldier grabbing his shoulders to pick him up. It then cuts away to show two soldiers, one on each side of the sergeant, moving him to a vehicle.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the soldiers fail to tie the artery in the dying soldier's leg, they then perform CPR. Not only do they forget to tilt the dead soldier's head back but when he starts doing compressions he presses on the lower ribs. This really needs to done firmly and directly over the heart to work. (01:55:13)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the two snipers are defending Durant's downed Black Hawk, both of them get shot up pretty badly, especially the second one, yet in the next scene viewed from overhead one has been stripped and there is no mark on him.
Corrected entry: The injured pilot (Durant) is in the small room looking at the picture of his family and when the angry mob of Somalis start attacking him he is wearing a pair of gloves. Later in the scene you can see his hands - the gloves have disappeared.
Corrected entry: When the Humvees are driving through the Market of Bakara, there is a sign above a building which says, "Olympic." Why would an English sign be placed in a country where no English is spoken at all?
Corrected entry: As the American soldiers run away from Mogadishu, one fires an automatic weapon that side loads a belt of bullets into the breech. The gun shakes as he shoots, and there are muzzle flashes, but the belt of bullets doesn't move. (02:06:20)
