Deliberate mistake: While Hector is in the water with the crocodile, he yells to the female officer to start the helicopter by turning the key. It takes a lot more than just the key to start a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter. Fuel shutoff valve, throttle, key, and the main rotor doesn't start rotating until the throttle on the collective stick is turned to a specific position.William Bergquist

Deliberate mistake: When Cochran sabotages the Jet Ranger helicopter by loosening the nut on the bolt securing the linear actuator governor, the bolt is inserted in the wrong direction. The bolt should have been heads up to prevent it from falling out as it did causing the helicopter to crash. Moreover, the linear actuator is on the opposite of the engine from where Cochran disconnected it. (00:38:05)William Bergquist
