When one of team has a chute that fails to open he falls to the ground much faster than the rest of the team whose chutes opened as expected. When he hits the water, everyone on the ground immediately runs to his aid, including Jessie who should still be up in the air hanging from a parachute.

Just before Selkirk deploys his sabotaged parachute we see a close up of him in freefall where we can clearly see he is missing his main 3 ring connectors, which means he has already cut away from his main in that shot.

After Swoop cuts away from his main to assist Selkirk with his malfunction we see a close up as he falls down to Selkirk, clearly his 3 ring connectors are still stowed which means his main has not even deployed at this point, yet we have just seen him cutaway.

When Nessip is practicing in the wind tunnel, being watched by the other members of the team, Jess Crossman is alternately shown with her red jumpsuit either fully on or tied around her waist. There does not appear to have been enough time elapsed for the configuration of her jumpsuit to change so often.

In his first jump with his team, Nessip is mostly shown with an orange cutaway handle. However, immediately after landing, on the same jump, Nessip is shown with a yellow cutaway handle.

After Selkirk falls after his chute doesn't open and 2 men pull him out of the water, you see Jessie already at his side on the ground. In the next shot, Jessie is still running to Selkirk.

Crew or equipment visible 

Right before the DC qualifying jump begins, a camera operator can be seen filming the crowd underneath the canopy. Although one could argue that he might just be filming for a news crew or making a documentary about the jump, the Panavision film camera he's clearly using is not suited for that sort of work.

When Ty crashes through the windshield of the truck in the final scene, in the wide shot of the truck crashing to a halt a tripod with a camera on top of it can be seen.

Ty and his team were supposed to be landing and infiltrating the "DEA Building" in Washington DC. We know this building is supposedly 27 stories high as one of the agents in the building hit the button in the elevator for Floor 27. No building in DC is that high, with the exception of the Washington Monument.

Factual errors 

When Ty and Nessip square off in the Fed building with empty guns, the slides in their semi-automatics should be racked back indicating empty clips.

When the 747 depressurizes, the pilots initiate a dive for an emergency landing. The airplane is shown from outside with its landing gear down. A pilot would never extend the landing gear at cruising speed, even during an emergency landing sequence.

The shot when we see Selkirk deploy his canopy that malfunctions is obviously reversed. He deploys with his left hand instead of his right and his cut-away pillow and reserve handle or on opposite sides to the correct position.

After the team-member has fallen into the water and he is not supposed to be breathing (before Jesse brings him back to life) one can clearly see him swallow.

When Nessip falls through the trap door of the plane, he doesn't have a chute (because he is a tandem guest). During free-fall the stunt double clearly wears a chute.
