Plot hole: There is no logical reason as to why two pilots on a training exercise would be given classified info such as the access codes for the nukes.
Factual error: During the scene on the train when Hale arrives in the helicopter, Deakin and Kelly shelter themselves from the incoming fire by hiding behind the walls, and manage to avoid taking any hits. This is odd considering they're sheltering not only behind wood walls, but wooden slats. The M16 with its 5.56mm rounds would easily penetrate the wood, let alone pass through the gaps, and injure, if not kill, our lovely villains. Even if they magically escaped unharmed, there would be bullet holes visible inside the train carriage, but these do not exist when the camera pans through it. Indeed, later on the train, Kelly fires a shotgun which happily penetrates the sides of the carriage. There is no reason an M16 would not be able to.
Continuity mistake: Despite a nuclear explosion sufficient to cause the ground to ripple for several kilometers, strangely, it is not sufficient to blow the top of the mineshaft.
Continuity mistake: When Deakins drops the nuclear weapons out of the stealth, the parachutes on the nukes are white. When the recovery team finds the nukes, the parachutes are black.
Continuity mistake: When Wilkins' helicopter blows up, the train comes to an almost complete stop and then goes through the tunnel slowly. When Hale and Terry are done sabotaging Deakins helicopter, the train is back to full speed.
