Continuity mistake: In the airport lobby, when the two policemen come at the bar they have "snow" all over their clothes. In the next shot they are shown from behind sitting at the bar and Lorenzo's brother has no snow on his jacket. Seconds after Mc Clane comes to talk to them and the cop has snow on his shoulders again.
Factual error: When McClane is trapped in the cockpit of Esperanza's plane, and the terrorists throw grenades in, it sure takes them a long time to explode, almost 30 seconds before he ejects from the plane and the grenades go off. Normal grenades have about a 5 second fuse. With a delay that long he could even have thrown them all back out at the bad guys.poehitman
Trivia: Producers of the movie were concerned that actual terrorists could use the information in the film to disrupt airport/airplane communications in real life. Most of the "sensitive" information in the film is not only wrong, it is purposely misleading to prevent terrorists from attempting what we see in the movie.Mark Bernhard
