Trivia: When the F-14s are ordered to shoot down flight 343, the radar intercept officer on the lead F-14 tells his pilot that he just received the order on the CRM-115. This is a reference to Dr. Strangelove. In that film, the B-52 crew receives their orders over the CRM-114.

Trivia: Despite being second billed to Kurt Russell, Steven Seagal is not listed in the opening credits.

Factual error: A flight manifest would never state on its seating chart that an armed U.S. marshal was on board as it gives away that person's identity and puts everyone on board in danger.
