Factual error: In the scene where Joe Patroni is attempting to move the stuck 707, Bakersfield is standing beside his car watching, very close to the plane. Without some form of hearing protection, he would have been very quickly deafened by the noise - a 707 at takeoff thrust is incredibly loud. I once watched a 707 take off from about a half mile away and forgot to cover my ears - it was so loud it actually hurt.
Factual error: In the scene where Joe Patroni is attempting to move the stuck 707, he pushes the throttles forward, problem is the throttles he is using are for a twin engine plane. The 707 has 4 throttle levers.
