Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): From the PA announcement we learn that Bicke will be boarding a TWA flight. In one shot of the aircraft a red pointed cheatline (stripe painted near the windows) is seen which would have been part of TWA's 1972 livery. However, when we see the exterior of the boarding door from the jetway, the Delta Air Lines "widget" (a red triangle and a blue triangle) can be seen.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Julius Bicke is shown wearing a wedding ring. He is a fervently Orthodox Jew, and such Orthodox males do not wear wedding rings as a matter of religious principle.
  • SPOILER: Loosely based on the life and death of Samuel Joseph Byck, who on 22 February 1974 attempted to hijack a Delta Air Lines DC-9 at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, in order to crash it into the White House and kill President Richard Nixon.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The main hero is taking horizontal elevator at 1:18. Such people-mover system was introduced to connect Harbour Island and downtown Tampa, Florida in 1985. People movers also were installed by Otis Elevator Company in Serfus, Austria, and Sun City, South Africa. In 1992 the company completed a similar 'horizontal elevator' in the new Tokyo international airport at Narita, Japan. So there were no such elevators back in 1974.
