Factual error: In the scene outside the pub, a Ford Sierra is seen driving past. These were not introduced into the UK until Autumn 1982. The film is supposed to be set in 1981.

Other mistake: As the plane is beginning to crash, Chuck grabs the watch with his girlfriend's photo in it, and somehow it survives everything, but how? He had the watch in his hand, but in many shots we can see Chuck with both hands open as he needs them to hold onto something. He didn't put it in his pocket, he didn't have time.
