Factual error: The enemy planes described as Mig-23, are really Israel's Air Force IAI Kfir fighters.

Factual error: The training scene where Cappy and Doug are doing target practice is all wrong. First of all, an F-16 would never be able to launch missiles at a cloth target on the ground. Those targets are for gun practice.Secondly, the MK-82 is a BOMB, not a missile as the movie shows. Also in order to drop a bomb, the pilot must use a computerized inertial pipper which calculates the precise drop zone. There is no way the absence of Doug's music could "mess up his rhythm" on the practice drop.
