Corrected entry: On the Delta Force uniform right sleeve is sewn an American flag. Frequently throughout the fighting some uniforms have the flag sewn on backwards (with the blue field and stars on the right). Either the costumer had non-Americans sew the uniform insignia without correct instructions; or, it is some kind of statement by the film maker. This would never happen on regulation uniforms.
Corrected entry: After Blackburn fell from the chopper, Matt quickly puts on his goggles to prepare to rope down. You can see he wore gloves on both hands. After Matt roped down, he attended to Blackburn. Watch his right hand placed on Blackburn's chest - he's not wearing his glove.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the informant parks his car outside the correct building and raises the hood to check the steam etc, an OH-6 Little Bird can be seen in the background. At this point in the movie, the only aircraft over Mog would have been the C2 Black Hawk and the P-3 Orion (not actually shown in the movie). The attacking Black Hawks, MH-6s and OH-6s have not yet taken off.
Corrected entry: The Somali on the cell phone phoning the militia was not possible. US army intelligence was jamming all non US radio and cell phone signals. This information is taken from the "Blackhawk Down" book. (00:35:30)
Corrected entry: When Durant is in the small room he is shooting through the holes in the walls at attackers. Even though the bricks making up the wall are large, none of them are ever hit by a bullet.
Corrected entry: Most of the actions attributed to SSG Matt Eversman in the movie were actually conducted by 1LTs Larry Perino and Tom DiTomasso.
