Heart & Soul - S8-E16

Corrected entry: The idea that the Admiral accidentally ejects himself while Harm remains in the Tomcat to fly isn't a possibility. In a Tomcat, if either the pilot or the RIO chooses to eject, both seats will be ejected. If the Admiral inadvertently ejected, he would have taken Harm with him.

Correction: F-14/TA-4/T-2/F-18 (2-seat variants): Front seat *always* fires rear seat. Rear seat may or may not fire front seat, depending on position of command eject handle. So the command ejection handle may have been positioned so he didn't fire the front seat.

Steve Kozak

Correction: Bud doesn't refer to Lt. Carter. He refers to the marine sergeant.

Ares - S1-E21

Corrected entry: When LCMR Rabb and Lt. Pike get off the chopper on the USS Daniel Boone, they are wearing uniforms with no flight suits on. It is Navy regulation that you have on a full flight suit while in a chopper and not going into combat

Correction: Not for JAG Officers.

Drop Zone - S5-E20

Corrected entry: Col. Mackenzie found the confidential report in her car, AFTER she turned off the alarm. And used her key to open the door. How did the report get in there?

Correction: It is strongly implied that Lt. Singer put the report in Mac's car to sabotage her case. If she were dishonest enough to do that, it's more than reasonable to believe she could have stolen Mac's keys and then replaced them after planting the report.

Desert Son - S1-E4

Corrected entry: After passing the coordinates, we hear Williams say "Do you copy?". The reply he gets is "Negative." At that point Williams should have resent the coordinates, as the coordinates were either not received or understood

Correction: And that's exactly what he does. He repeats the direction bearing 136 and then the scene cuts to the captain, so the distance surely was transmitted as well, we just didn't hear it. No mistake in the radio transmission.

Ronnie Bischof

Washington Holiday - S2-E9

Factual error: In the whole episode, Romania is depicted as a monarchy with the king in a position that allows him to make political decisions. However, Romania ceased to be a monarchy in 1947. By the time depicted in the episode (circa 1997), Romania was a republic and its head of state was the president. Members of the ex-royal family did not hold any positions in the Romanian government and were certainly not authorized to represent Romania in international events.

Admiral Chegwidden: Nobody pulls a JAG officer off an investigation except me or God, and He hasn't asked.

Chosen answer: When landing on an aircraft carrier, a pilot "calls the ball" by confirming to the landing signal officer (LSO) that they have the carrier, and more specifically its landing guidance systems in sight. Carriers use a Fresnel lens system which is a light only visible at a certain angle, so if a pilot sees the "ball" they are at the correct altitude and glide slope for landing.
