Blue Thunder

Character mistake: Following Lymangood's death, police dispatch radios a BOLO on Murphy, identifying his vehicle as a 1979 Trans Am. However Murphy drives a Turbo Trans Am, only available in 1980 and 1981. Dispatch should have all of his data available.

Mistakes

Murphy lands the helicopter on a railway line so an oncoming train will destroy it completely, and this happens exactly on cue with huge, dramatic explosions and flying debris. Apparently the train driver doesn't think this is important enough to interrupt his busy schedule - he doesn't stop the train. We do not hear brakes being applied - the wheels would make a noise like the sky coming down - and the train doesn't slow down at all - it just keeps on going.

Trivia

The registration number N77GH is visible on a gold placard on right surveillance camera' but only civilian aircraft are given November numbers. Military helicopters only have a series of numbers like on the tail. You aren't supposed to notice Blue Thunder's real "N" number, but it is there throughout the movie making it known it was truly a civilian helicopter.
