Armageddon

Continuity mistake: When Grace throws down Thurman because of frustration, she first grabs him by the back, but in the next shot he's facing upwards. (01:55:25)

Factual error: Both shuttles are approaching the Russian space station with their main engines on, without atmosphere that would not be needed.

Factual error: When landing back on Earth, the Colonel says "100% flaps." Flap positions are graduated in°, with the extreme position being full flaps (40 to 50°).

Visible crew/equipment: There is a reflection of the cameraman & crane in fume in the outside shot while A.J. and Lev discuss controls of the Armadillo, before they reach the canyon.

Other mistake: Adding on to the idea of the shuttles flying too close together, at a couple points the ejected shuttles from one booster appear to fly directly into the flight path of the tailing shuttle. While is certainly possible the second shuttle could maneuver to avoid the collision, it further demonstrates the absurdities of launching the two craft in such close proximity.

Revealing mistake: When it shows the first shuttle docking with the Russian space station, you can see the word "Force" on the side of the shuttle. When the second shuttle docks, its a reverse of the same footage, because now you can see the word "Force" is backwards.

Harry Stamper: The United States Government just asked us to save the world. Anyone wanna say no?

Trivia: The character Freddy Noonan appears in, or is referenced in many scenes yet is more or less an afterthought. This is the same name as Amelia Earhart's navigator, who was involved in one of the most famous real life aerial mysteries, but is also a largely forgotten person.
