Other mistake: The captain talks about the "outflow valve", which has a distinctive rectangular shape and is fitted flush with an opening in the aircraft skin. It would be immediately recognizable by any crew member because it part of the walkaround inspection before each flight. He is holding a round pneumatic supply valve instead, which is part of the internal ductwork.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the show when Jim is making toast they show him through the window taking the toast out of the toaster and putting it on the plate. In the next shot he is walking towards the kitchen table and the plate is empty. Then while talking to his mother he picks up a piece of toast to put jelly on it.
Visible crew/equipment: When Melinda is at the VFW trying to get information on Paul Evans, she and Joe are alone with his wife's ghost, and after Joe tells Melinda that she can come by anytime for scintillating conversation, it cuts to a shot facing her and we can see equipment movement at the bottom right side of the screen.

Factual error: The tail section of the crashed plane is from an early model 737, based on the curvature where the forward edge of the vertical stabilizer meets the top of the fuselage. The maximum seating capacity would have been about 130 passengers, while the number of crash victims was given as approximately twice that.
Visible crew/equipment: After Hank Dale tells Steve Pinkus that he wants to know "How it feels to get away with murder," Hank throws a punch, and in the next wide shot we can see the second cameraman's arms holding an additional camera, presumably to film the close-up, at the right side of the screen.
Continuity mistake: When Joseph wants proof that Melinda sees Julian, the boy asks Melinda to describe the tattoo behind his father's right ear, and we see a close-up of the white dove tattoo that Julian got after his son's birth. Then, while Julian whispers to his son, there is no tattoo behind his left ear, but as Julian walks backwards toward Jim the white dove tattoo is now visible.
