Executive Decision

Factual error: The crew sent to board the ill fated jumbo jet is in the "Remora", which is clearly a modified F-117A Stealth Fighter, but retaining the same dimensions. It would be physcially impossible to fit that many people and such a spacious cargo hold into a plane that size with the engines. In fact, with the additional weight, the engines would have to be even bigger for it to operate.

Trivia: Oceanic Airlines seems to be an airline name often used in action movies and TV series involving ill-fated airplanes. Lost and Turbulence (which reused external shots from this film) both feature Oceanic planes that meet some kind of disaster.

Trivia: When the F-14s are ordered to shoot down flight 343, the radar intercept officer on the lead F-14 tells his pilot that he just received the order on the CRM-115. This is a reference to Dr. Strangelove. In that film, the B-52 crew receives their orders over the CRM-114.
