Did You Know?
The Hulk's death in this film has been a topic of discussion since its release, owing to some consistency issues. In this film, the Hulk shows increased superhuman strength over what he had during the television series' run; while in the episode 'The Hulk Breaks Las Vegas' it was able to topple one small tractor with both of his arms, in this film he is able to stop two visibly larger tractors, one with each arm, to the point that they break down. Also, during the scene in the lab where the Hulk is contained in a force-field, Banner heals from his inch-long laceration in a matter of seconds, which he was unable to do both as Banner or Hulk throughout the course of the TV series. Such injuries would take at least an hour for the Hulk to heal from, and it is in Hulk form that his healing factor works at its fastest. These two instances confirm that over time, the Hulk's powers increase substantially, allowing him to exert more strength and heal from his injuries faster. Despite this development, both Banner and Hulk die by falling from a plane explosion in the end. In the season 4 episode 'Free Fall', Banner falls from an even steeper height than in this case, and yet manages to survive without any injury as he turns into the Hulk when he crashes into a tool shed. However, he is fatally injured when landing on the ground in Hulk form. Adding to this is the fact that there are no burns on the Hulk's body, even though he was right inside the plane as it exploded mid-air. These major inconsistencies were subject to criticism following the film's release. These decisions are presumed to be deliberate, as there was going to be a follow-up to this film where the Hulk and Banner were revived. But, with the mediocre ratings of this film, and Bill Bixby's health issue, that sequel never took off, leaving this film to be the definite ending to the series. See more
Near the end of the movie, when the Hulk falls from the exploding airplane, he is first shown (from a distance) in front of the flames, falling face down. Immediately thereafter he shown falling face up, then again falling face down, then finally again, falling face up. At no time is there any indication that he is spinning or tumbling. Also, when the camera zooms in on his shoulder, part of the table Lou Ferrigno
is lying on is visible. See more

Dr. Ronald Pratt
David, are you telling me that this creature cannot die?
If the damage were catastrophic maybe. Maybe. But I have seen lacerations close in seconds, bullet wounds heal, I don't even have scar.
Dr. Ronald Pratt
That's incredible. It's almost... it's almost immortal.
Incredible yes, an incredible nightmare. And I want to destroy it and be human again.
