JAG (1995)

Show generally

Factual error: Season 9, Episode 5, "Touchdown": When they have to jettison fuel during their final approach to the aircraft carrier, Rabb tells his co-pilot to dump 200 pounds of fuel. That is about 30 Gallons (about two normal car tanks). But there is way too much fuel being dumped to be only 30 gallons.

JAG (1995)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 9, Episode 5, "Touchdown:" When they try to land the C130 on the aircraft carrier, the co-pilot says that they don't have the right landing gear down, so she goes to the back to instruct one of the passengers how to lower the gear manually. The problem is that they lower the left gear, which was already down.

JAG (1995)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Season 9, Episode 5, "Touchdown": When the plane approaches the aircraft carrier, they have to dump fuel, and the fuel comes out through the back. However it should be coming out on the wing tips. So they had a tank of water or something similar that they sprayed out through the back. (Confirmed by a Staff Seargent with the USMC who flew 8 years on a C130.)

JAG (1995)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Season 9 Episode 5, "Touchdown": The cockpit of the C130 is not correctly rebuilt. The pilots are sitting too close to each other. (Verified by a former C130 pilot with the USMC.)

JAG (1995)

Show generally

Factual error: Season 9 Episode 5, "Touchdown": When they approach the aircraft carrier, the copilot says that the number two engine is flaming out. This means there is no more fuel to run that engine. That supposedly also means that there is not enough fuel for a fire alarm lighting up in the cockpit, which is what happens in the show. (Verified by a USMC Staff Sergeant who flew 8 years on a C130).

JAG (1995)

Show generally

Factual error: Season 9 Episode 5, "Touchdown": During the approach on the aircraft carrier, they had to put out the gear manually. The copilot shouts that she has three greens (meaning that all gears are down and locked), then she puts the gear lever up. If that is done, the gear would raise again or be in an unsafe position for the landing.

Empty Quiver - S8-E17

Continuity mistake: When Rabb lands at Norfolk the number of the chopper is 426, there he meets Commander Turner who says that he takes the same chopper as transport to the submarine. The Sea Knight is the last transport to leave the base before lock-down. When the same chopper approaches the USS Crawford it suddenly has the number 62.

Continuity mistake: After Rabb flies as RIO near the end of the movie, they land in a F-14 with the number 114, however when they get out of the aircraft the number is 242.

Other mistake: Throughout the whole show there are several shots of submarines, aircraft carrier landings, chopper flights that are exactly the same in different episodes.

The Black Jet - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rabb takes off with the F-117 in the Iranian desert we see bushes when he lifts off, however in the next shot, when we see the Nighthawk from the front, the bushes are gone.
