Corrected entry: When Pinball is dropped from the plane, he hits the car as it is leaving a red light. The car is then hit from the rear really hard which seems odd since they just left a red light. Then the car is hit on the right side by a blue station wagon, so I guess someone ran a redlight 10 seconds late, but then that same blue car gets hit from behind meaning the guy behind him ran a redlight too... (00:55:10)
Corrected entry: When Poe writes the message on the con's stomach he throws him out of the plane. If you listen closely when Poe throws him out of the plane there is a splash sound like he is landing in water but in the next scene he lands on a car.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Cendino is double crossing the inmates. Cyrus tosses a cigarette on the fuel and it ignites. Though this is cool in the movie it is actually impossible. Since this is more than likely airplane fuel, the cigarette would simply be extinguished. It takes a heat source much hotter and more constant than a cigarette to ignite that type of fuel.
Corrected entry: When the "Con Air" plane lands at Lerner Airfield it almost has a head on collision with another plane. Cyrus didn't care about most of the convicts anyway, so why didn't he, Diamond Dawg, and Swamp Thing just take the plane that they almost hit instead of having everyone dig out their original plane?
Corrected entry: The plane that is carrying the prisoners is a C-123. Its max. level speed is above 600 km/h, while its cruising speed is above 400km/h, so how the hell do they manage to use two AH-1 Cobra anti-tank helicopters to chase the C-123? The AH-1's max. speed is 352km/h. Interesting...
Corrected entry: Why are they making an emergency landing on the Strip, when there is an airfield right beside and aligned with it? Or why couldn't they just land somewhere on the thousands of square miles of desert around Vegas?
Corrected entry: When agent Sims is boarding the plane, Malloy gives a gun to him. But the gun is at the left leg, and when Sims is inside the plane and pulls out the gun, it is in the right leg.
Corrected entry: When the plane takes off from Lerner airfield, it flies over John Cusack and the other agents, trailing the car. Quite a few seconds after flying over them, the car hits the tower and flies off, still falling away from them. However, they then have to stand back because the car falls at their feet, despite the fact that by that stage the car would have been at least 200m away from them.
Corrected entry: When Johnny tries to rape the female guard, Poe comes to the rescue and knocks him out. Poe then handcuffs him to an overhead rail with both hands in the cuffs over the rail. Yet after the crash, while the police are doing clean-up, they drag away Johnny leaving one arm hanging off, as if Poe put only one of his hands in the cuffs, and one cuff on the overhead rail. Even with one arm severed, they couldn't naturally have got out of that position without the severed arm going over the rail, in which case it would be lying on the floor with the rest of him.
