Revealing mistake: In the scene where Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr. crash upside down in the jungle, the windshield of the helicopter breaks out. When they release their belts, the windshield is visibly taped back together for them to crash through.
Other mistake: When Robert Downey Jr. lowers the helicopter onto the freeway to yell at the truck driver, he is very close to the truck driver, so close that the truck driver can even hit the helicopter. Why does a long haired man standing underneath a helicopter not have his hair blown around?
Continuity mistake: When Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr. are hanging upside down in the copter, the first scene (with the necklace mistake) has Mel in the right seat and Robert in the left seat. When they crash out of the window Mel falls out first from the left seat and then Robert from the right seat.
Billy Covington: I don't wanna crash twice in one day.
Gene Ryack: Don't worry, I crash better that anyone I know.
Gene Ryack: Here at Air America, what's considered psychotic behavior anywhere else is company policy.
Gene Ryack: There'll be another, new war opening soon in a theater near you.
