Turbulence

Factual error: In the shot where the lady passenger boards the Upper Deck to take her seat, she boards through an aft-facing straight staircase, located at the rear of the cabin. On the 747-200, which they were flying, the majority were equipped with circular staircases, and a few equipped with the aft-facing straight staircases, but in both cases, they were located in the front of the cabin, no exceptions.

Factual error: When a hole was blown out of the side of the plane, the stewardess is being pushed back by the wind. Surely she would have been sucked out of the plane due to the changes in air pressure?

Continuity mistake: When the fighter shoots and blows up the truck, there is a shot of the flight attendant (at that moment being strangled by Ray Liotta) sitting in the pilot's seat, looking over her shoulder. It cuts back to the pilot, then back to her being strangled again. Very, very choppy editing.

Teri Halloran: Only once?
