Hana Mao 'ole ka ua o Waianae - S9-E25

Character mistake: The bad guy escapes on a private jet, narrowly avoiding being run off the runway, and he breathes a sigh of relief, thinking he's got away with it. But anyone with half a brain would know full well that given the cops know the plane he's in and where he started from, it's no challenge at all to track him, and at an extreme scramble a fighter to escort him back / shoot him down.

Hana Mao 'ole ka ua o Waianae - S9-E25

Character mistake: An escaping criminal steals an airplane and proceeds to take off. Let's not even discuss how a non pilot with just flight simulator time and no instruction could even do such a thing, especially starting it by watching a computer. What would never happen is that when confronted with a group of police cars in his way trying to prevent his takeoff, only then does he proceed to advance to full power. All takeoffs are done with full power from the beginning, otherwise you run the risk of never taking off at all. (00:31:40)

Suggested correction: The name of McGarrett's father is not Jack, it's John.

Maybe not literally, but it's a common nickname for people named John. See John F. Kennedy and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
