Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Oveur speaks the line, "You can tell me, I'm the captain," his voice sounds as though he is speaking into some kind of microphone, but he is not.

Character error 

When Ted Stryker is attempting to land the shuttle, he makes reference to the events of Airplane! and talks about landing a Boeing 767 in Chicago. In "Airplane!" he was landing a Boeing 707. The Boeing 767 was not in service until 1982.

When Ted lands the shuttle on the moon, it bypassed the moon colony and crashed as it did it spun around so the nose was now facing to the Base, later in a long shot, when everyone was jumping out of the shuttle the long camera shot shows a long deep trail left by the shuttle crash, yet there is no spin out trail and the shuttle nose is facing away from the base

When McCroskey informs Striker about Joe Salucci, he doesn't mention ether the insurance nor Salucci's impotence. Yet Striker mentions both when he confronts Salucci.

When Striker is in the passenger seat and throws his drink in his face, you see his shirt wet. In the long shot of him and Elaine talking his shirt is completely dry.

Right after they blow the computer, Ted tells Elaine she'd better check the readout. When she gets up, the back of her shirt is untucked. A moment later, when she is standing at the engineer's station, the back of her shirt is tucked in.

Factual errors 

During Striker telling "his story" to Dr. Stone, he says, "fate dropped me into the seat of a 767 into Chicago with no crew." In Airplane!, Striker tells Dr. Rumack that the plane has four engines ("It's an entirely different kind of flying, all together."). A 767 only has two engines. There has never been a four engine variant of the 767. Also, Airplane! takes place in 1980. The 767 did not go into commercial service until September, 1982.

During its runaway course, the passenger shuttle travels through an asteroid belt just before heading straight for the sun, implying that there is a major asteroid field between Earth and the Sun. There are no asteroid fields of any kind between Earth and the Sun. The main asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. There are also several other minor asteroid fields, but all of them are located near the edge of our solar system and/or beyond the orbit of Neptune.

Miscellaneous 

During the shots of the shuttle in space, at various times a black bar seems to block out the stars as the shuttle flies by them (happens to the left, right, and under the shuttle). Obviously an arm holding the shuttle.

Revealing mistakes 

A moon shuttle couldn't possibly have enough fuel to head into the sun. You can't "fall" into the sun without zeroing out the momentum of the orbit of the Earth around it.
