Continuity mistake: When the Thunder is shown for very first time the sun is barely rising, but at the time it gets to the training field the sun is high like it's noon.

Visible crew/equipment: The helicopters are flying low above the streets chasing each other. Several forward looking shots show no to very little traffic, and one blatantly shows two cops directing traffic away from the set of the film.

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.

Sgt. Short: This ship is equipped with a forward-mounted, twenty-millimeter electric cannon. Its six barrels are capable of firing four thousand rounds of ammunition per minute. And that, gentlemen, is one hell of a shit-storm in anybody's language.

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.
