Factual error: Air Force One landed in Wichita, Kansas. The local coroner claimed jurisdiction for Wichita County. The city of Wichita, Kansas is in Sedgwick County, in southern Kansas. Wichita County, Kansas is in western Kansas, about 250 miles from the city of Wichita.
Factual error: While the NCIS crew are working a crime scene, Ducky starts yet another parable about his past experiences, referring to the dating of an Indian skeleton by the caliber of the bullet, "a 40-75". He states that since he knew the year that the US Army used that caliber, he could accurately date the remains. Unfortunately for Ducky, the US Army never used a 40-75. It did, however authorize a contract for a 45-70 cartridge in 1873.
Factual error: After Gerald gets back to NCIS HQ, he notes that he wasn't able to drive Ducky's Morgan; a stick. Abby brags about knowing how to drive a stick since she was ten. When asked what she drove that had stick, she answered, "Red '47 Ford half-ton with four on the floor and Bubba riding shotgun." When asked who Bubba was, she answered that he was the best coon dog in Jefferson Parish. If in fact Abby grew up in the city of New Orleans, as stated by McGee in the episode before, the dog would not have been the best coon dog in Jefferson Parish but Orleans Parish. No part of New Orleans is inside the Parish of Jefferson. If it was truly the best coon dog in Jefferson Parish then Abby would have lived in Metarie or Kenner, Louisiana, both of which are inside the parish limits of Jefferson Parish.

Factual error: There is a flashback scene in this episode, where a young, dejected Abby Sciuto is walking along railroad tracks after failing to give the bear back to Ricki. This scene starts with a shot of the railroad tracks, then pans up to Abby. It can be seen that the rails are laid on concrete sleepers, with modern steel clips holding the rails to the sleepers. Given that the flashback appears to take place when she was at least a couple of decades younger (i.e. the mid-1990s), such modern methods of construction wouldn't have been used. A period-accurate railroad track would have wooden sleepers, spikes and lighter rail. As such, it's obvious that the producers just went to the nearest railroad tracks and filmed the scene there.
Factual error: During the sequence where Bankston and Lee are supposed to make the dead drop of Domino, Adams Tavern, the location of the drop, is shown to be at 2177 Pimmit Drive in Woodbridge Va. The map that is showing the location is geographically correct, but "Pimmit Drive" is actually Horner Road. Also once the action leaves the bar, Lee and Bankston hijack a bus that reads "District Transit Authority". Since they are in Woodbridge, the bus service would be OmniLink.
