Revealing mistake: During the disco scene, Elaine is dancing with a fisherman who was just stabbed in the back. The fisherman has a knife sticking out of his back and you can clearly see the block that the knife is stuck in protruding from his shirt. There are holes from other takes too.


Visible crew/equipment: Striker is in the pilot's seat and a vulture is sitting on the back of it. On the bottom-left of screen you can see someone's forearm in a white sleeve, giving the suggestion that either Randy or Elaine are standing, and leaning on the pilot seat's armrest. However, Randy is not in the cockpit and Elaine is sitting in the co-pilot's seat.


Revealing mistake: In the disco dance sequence where Elaine is twirling, you can see the ropes that keep her attached to the camera rig.


Other mistake: When Striker says to Randy "You better leave sweetie, you might get hurt up here," watch Elaine who was trying not to laugh.



Revealing mistake: When Striker unlocks the automatic pilot, you can see strings at the top left corner to lift him up.



Revealing mistake: When the old woman asks Elaine about reading, if you look behind Elaine and to the upper left, you can see the scotch tape holding the set together. You have to look closely to see it.


Continuity mistake: The whole time Striker and Elaine are talking in the beginning people in the background constantly change.



Audio problem: When the girl scouts are fighting and one of them slides the other one across the table and she hits the jukebox, you hear a shattering sound, but it doesn't shatter.

Continuity mistake: When the plane crashes into the the window at the very beginning of the movie, between shots people change completely.



Continuity mistake: Striker leaves Elaine in the cockpit. When he sits down, Dr. Rumack comes in. First his shadow is on the the wall on the left, then in the next shot. it's on the right side of him.



Continuity mistake: The plane we see at the end dragging on the ground and takling off is a 707. 707's have four engines: two on each wing. However, the plane we see in the air is a 727. 727's have three engines: one on each side of the rear fuselage and one on the vertical stabilizer.

Revealing mistake: When Elaine is visiting Ted at the mental hospital and she says Lt. Zipp died this morning, when Ted picks up the water right before he spits, there's the same amount in the glass when he picked it up and set it down. So he didn't drink anything or spit any water.



Visible crew/equipment: When the vulture appears behind Striker, notice a moving white stick on the left side of the screen used by the animal handler offscreen.

Continuity mistake: After you see all the newspapers talking about the plane, and when you see the drummer on TV who speaks by drum tones, when the drums are handed to him the ends of the sticks are round, but when he looks to HIS left, after the camera changes position, they're not round anymore.



Revealing mistake: In the flashback dance scene, Ted does a Russian sort of dance. Throughout the scene, you can see the black wires holding him up. Just look to the slightly right or left of him as he dances.

Revealing mistake: When the guy, who is sitting next to his wife, pukes into a bag, as he raises his head to puke again for a couple of seconds you can see directly into the barf bag and it's totally empty.


Audio problem: Most of the time when everyone is getting beat up by Kramer on his way to the airport, not many people move their mouths when they talk.



Revealing mistake: Throughout the cockpit scenes, Otto's (the auto pilot) face is just painted, with no facial features sticking out. When he is about to fly the plane, he winks out the window, and turns his head. After he turns his head you can see the extra attachment on his left eye used for this.

Continuity mistake: In one of the first establishing shots of the starring Boeing 707, the tailplane livery would suggest that the aircraft is a real-life Trans World Airlines (TWA) airliner with 'Trans American' and 'TA' merely painted on. However, in nearly all subsequent shots (such as that of the aircraft in the air), the tailplane design is noticeably different - the thick red square is now a thin red stripe instead. Also, a further red stripe now extends upwards over the fuselage just before the tailplane.

00:08:05 - 00:14:00

Continuity mistake: When the doctor comes back to talk to Striker, you first see the man's shadow on the wall. It doesn't have an arm out. When the angle changes, you see the man's arm on the corner of the wall.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: At the end when Elaine and Ted are standing on the runway kissing, the first shot of their plane can be seen in the background and it appears to be up off the runway on its landing gear, not lying flat on its belly. When Otto starts the engines to take off and the camera focuses back on the plane, the plane is back on it's belly like it was when it landed.

Continuity mistake: In the scenes on the plane, the camera angle showing the seats down the left side (on the plane's right side) change from 3 seats to 2 seats, then back again. This is evident because the 2 black passengers who speak 'Jive" are seen in their seats with both 3 and 2, and not because it goes from Coach to First Class.
