Audio problem: Just before the crashed jet skids to a stop, you can hear the jet engines despite them being ripped off with the tail fin quite a way back, so you shouldn't be able to hear them.

Audio problem: After the two treasury agents restrain FBI Agent Mathison, Agent Travers draws his weapon and we hear the sound of him cocking the hammer, however, his thumb stays on the grips.

Mister Ed

Audio problem: When Gabe is yelling at Qualen to drop Jesse off on the mountain at the end, he yells "over there" and points to his right. however, he points to the right with the hand holding the walkie talkies as he is yelling over there without any trail off of his voice. his voice can be heard loud and clear as if he was talking straight into the walkie talkie.

Factual error: How is it that when Sly comes out of the freezing, icy water, his hair and clothes are bone dry? I don't know too much about hypothermia, but I would imagine that his fairly thin sweater isn't wind proof. I'm sure by the time the movie ended, he would be suffering from more symptoms of hypothermia other than chattering teeth.

Trivia: The stunt early on in the film where Eric Qualen and his team do the plane to plane transfer was performed by British stuntman Simon Crane. The stunt was performed at an altitude of 2.95 miles (4.75 km) and was the most expensive stunt ever performed costing £568,000(£1 million). Sly Stallone is said to have reduced his fee by that amount to ensure the stunt was made.

Question: How the did the cases carrying the money survive intact after being dropped from so high?

Answer: For one, they fell into snow which would have softened the blow. Also, as common in aviation or even just cases that are meant to contain valuables like money, they are designed to withstand impacts or attempts to break them open.

Wouldn't the bad guys have to spend what could be weeks trying to find the money if the cases were to break open?

Snow softened the blow? I thought objects went through snow.
