Passenger 57

Plot hole: When Rane and the other terrorists come out the bottom of the plane and start walking towards the fairgrounds, it is amazing how not one police officer or staff member of the airport notices that they came out from under the plane, or that they don't seem to be walking off the plane like the other passengers.


Plot hole: When the police and FBI arrest Rane at the fairgrounds, Cutter tells them Vincent (one of Rane's men) is also at the fair, and wearing a tan jacket. Cutter did not see Vincent leave the plane and never saw him at the fair, and when he last saw him on the plane he was not wearing this jacket. So how could he know Vincent was at the fair and wearing a tan jacket?


Plot hole: The airport at which the plane lands is only supposed to have a small airfield. Yet near the end we see the huge plane roaring down the runway for more than a minute, which would be impossible on a small airfield.


Plot hole: When Cutter is already up with the pilots, and Rane hears the elevator come up and grabs the stewardess, he tells her to open the door. How could the elevator come up without someone pushing the button, as the terrorist was dead?


Plot hole: While Cutter is in the bathroom, the first thing he hears of the terrorists taking over the plane, is one of them yelling "sit down". If he heard that, how could he have not heard the gun shots when Ms. Ritchie shot the FBI agents, or the sounds of screaming passengers?


Plot hole: Liz Hurley, who is one of the hijackers, learns that Cutter is an undercover security agent. Yet for some reason she fails to pass this on to any of the other hijackers. When they take over none of them appear to have any knowledge of Cutter.


Continuity mistake: A sexy blond woman wearing a short hot-pink top, dark jacket and miniskirt exits the plane with the first 100 hostages. She leaves again later with the rest of the passengers and is seen leaving the plane again at the end when the members of the press surround the plane to question the agent.

Question: How did the FBI agent know that the two FBI agents on the plane were killed earlier?

Answer: It's been a while since I've watched this movie, but he obviously knows the plane is hijacked. It's a pretty safe assumption that the agents are dead as they're escorting a dangerous, high profile prisoner. Pretty easy to connect the dots. Alternatively, they could've failed to check in, and he assumed the worst.
