Final Destination

Other mistake: When the plane takes off in Alex's vision, the plane begins to go into a nosedive, and the entire left fuselage is blown apart, sucking many people out of the plane. The plane then explodes completely, but in reality, the plane just takes off, and explodes almost instantly afterwards. No struggling with the plane is shown in reality, nor is the plane going into a nosedive. This is also proven in FD5, which is a prequel. The jet engine explodes, leaving a flaming tail, and the plane spinning out of control. The plane just simply "explodes" without any signs of struggle.

Suggested correction: Death will find any way to make sure that someone dies when they're supposed to, so regardless of how it happens, how natural is it when an invisible force is causing the explosion? Plus, just because Alex had a vision of it does not mean that the real-life occurrence will happen in the same way. It doesn't really matter how the plane exploded; all that matters is that it did.

It's shown throughout the series that the visions are how the deaths take place. So the mistake is valid.

Other mistake: When Carter is basically trying to kill himself with the remaining "survivors" in his car, Billy makes a comment saying that when he saw Alex leaving Mrs. Lewton's place, Alex's shoe prints were in her blood and his prints were on the knife. All good and fine but there's just one thing that doesn't make much sense. Her house blew up right after he ran out, so could anyone still pull off any prints from the knife that killed her, and see footprints by her body? Wouldn't that evidence be gone in the explosion?

Suggested correction: Not necessarily. An explosion doesn't mean that everything around it is incinerated. Depending on where the explosion originated, certain items can be shielded from the blast/fire by larger objects, and I believe they mentioned that the fire caramelized the bloody footprints.

Mistakes

At the memorial service the principal says that it's been 39 days since 39 loved ones had died. But there were 40 students on the plane and 4 chaperones, making the total 44. Now 7 people got off the plane which means 37 people related to that memorial service actually died, not 39. Two pilots would make up the numbers, but there would be flight crew too, which still leaves the numbers off.

Trivia

The filmmakers originally had an ending in which Alex grabs the cable that lies on Clear's car, Alex catches fire and dies. Then Clear gets her baby and Carter survives. The test audience didn't like this, so the filmmakers shot another ending in which Alex is decapitated by a crashing police helicopter. But again, the test audience didn't like the fact that Alex dies, so they shot the finish with the billboard, which took 6 days to film and cost nearly $2,000,000.
