Factual error: There would not be so many people standing around on the flight deck without some type of ear and eye protection and a float coat.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning they are on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). Later they are aboard the the U.S.S. Carl Vinson (CVN-70) and end up on the U.S.S. Nimitz (CVN-68), yet the personnel are the same aboard all three ships.
Factual error: During the scene in which the plane flies directly toward the ground at a speed of 2070 knots to deliver the bomb, after dropping the bomb and pulling up to fly horizontally through the city streets, there is no damage or anything created from a sonic boom. At that level and speed, the sonic boom would have been tremendous on the ground, even if the plane was designed to minimize the shock wave.
Trivia: After the credits roll out, there's an extra scene about E.D.I.
Kara Wade: Just tell me you love me, you pussy.
Tim: [Referring to E.D.I.] He can't hear you. He's sleeping.
Ben Gannon: You know what, I'll call it a he when it comes out of its cockpit and takes a piss, how's that?
Question: What is the deal with a apples in this movie, is it a subtle reference to something? Aside from the main bad guy chomping on one while tailing with someone (rude), there are several scenes with large bowls of apples. In one scene, there are two tables with bowls of apples on them.
Question: Throughout the movie, what songs were E.D.I. playing?
