Factual error: The crew sent to board the ill fated jumbo jet is in the "Remora", which is clearly a modified F-117A Stealth Fighter, but retaining the same dimensions. It would be physcially impossible to fit that many people and such a spacious cargo hold into a plane that size with the engines. In fact, with the additional weight, the engines would have to be even bigger for it to operate.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily. The real-world F-117 could carry a 5000 lb. bomb load, equivalent to 20 men of 250 lbs each. This crew of 6 men would represent a significantly lighter payload. Whether those people could fit into the original bomb bay (if that's how the plane was modified) is another question.
