Iron Eagle

Revealing mistake: If you pay close attention to the close up shots of Doug's F-16 dropping bombs or launching mavericks, you will notice that the fighter is a poorly detailed scale model of the real thing. In the scene where Doug drops the Hades, you will notice that he is actually a barely painted figurine and that he suddenly has no headrest/ejection chair.

Continuity mistake: When Doug Masters and all his friends are at the burger joint and Masters has just received a letter saying he has been denied enrolment into the US air force academy, his enemy Knotcher tries to humiliate him by announcing it over the loudspeaker. Masters then runs up to the window and threatens to assault him. Knotcher suggests that a race would be more appropriate to which they both agree. During this whole conversation, Knotcher's right arm is up, next shot it's down, then up, then down again.

Doug Masters: What is it with you, Knotcher? Can't you make it through a day without proving what an asshole you are?
