Clear And Present Danger

Other mistake: The first plane to explode has a very neat symmetrical blast originating from underneath the plane - which is in fact wrong given that only one charge was placed on the side of the plane. The plane would be badly damaged and probably jack knife through the side of the hangar instead.

Other mistake: In Colombia, a heavily camouflaged soldier goes into a hangar and places a bomb on it and rushes out before it explodes. On his way out, he passes another soldier who is lying as close to the ground as possible. In front of this soldier is a line of fine wire, right in front of his face. The only thing I can think of for that wire being there is as a marker for the actor.

Revealing mistake: When Jack Ryan goes to Ernesto Escabeda's residence and asks to see Ernesto, as he is led up to the house we see his two companions on a roof top ledge watching through binoculars and one of them says "He's in", if you look at that shot closely the suppressor on the mp5 laying next to the sniper is fitted at a decidedly wonky looking angle.
