Corrected entry: One stupid mistake in this film is that after 70 odd days (at the end of the film), characters are seen smoking. After this time they still have cigarettes?

Correction: They found the tail and with it lots of cigarettes when they had already been there for a while. It's those cigarettes they smoke later.

Continuity mistake: After 70 days in the Andes, Nando has not grown a beard. Two days later, when they come with the choppers, he's managed to grow quite a nice one.

Suggested correction: It's possible that Nando continued shaving (offscreen) while they were living at the plane, but gave it up (or left his razor behind) during the trek out of the mountains. In real life, some of the survivors did shave while in the mountains.

Roberto Canessa: We're gonna die, you know.
Nando: Maybe. But if we die, we're gonna die walking.

Question: When the trio first found the tail, Nando writes "Go Up 18 Still Alive" in the tail. The fuselage is lower than the tail because after the tail was detached, the fuselage slid far down. The trio had to climb up the mountain to find the tail. So why does he write "up" instead of "down"?
