The patch on Jimmy's fatigues is color. By 1983, the USAF had converted the patches on the olive drab fatigue uniforms to a subdued, more camouflaged version.

When Goofy is using the mop to knock the keys off the table, Virgil's collar is white. His collar is supposed to be blue at that point in the plot and is blue in previous and subsequent shots.

Factual errors 

The leather jacket Jimmy Garret wears is actually a Navy G-1 flight jacket worn by Navy aircrew. The Air Force did not begin issuing leather flying jackets to aircrew (theirs, being the A-2) until 1988, one year after the release of this film.

As Virgil is taxiing the O-2 toward the runway the AP radios airport security that the aircraft is headed down taxiway 3. At all airports taxiways are lettered, not numbered. Numbers are used only for runways.

On Jimmy's green fatigue uniform, the Air Force Logistics Command shield is in the wrong position. He is wearing it on his upper right-hand side, when it should be on the lower right-hand side.
