Factual errors 

Although a radar (like the ASR-7 shown at the Air Force Base) can hypothetically detect a flock of birds and an ultralight, it's unlikely. Their low reflectivity and slow ground speed (the support boat said they were going 21 knots, about 25 mph), the radar would "reject" the returns as clutter.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Thomas Alden runs outside in his underwear, a defect in the window pane looks like some kind of fake coverup.

Though based on events which happened in 1988, the film is not set then, so perceived anachronisms are irrelevant.
