When Col. Childers boards the helicopter on the USS Wake Island, it is a USMC UH-1N Huey with twin engines. During the shots of the helicopters approaching the embassy, Childers' helicopter switched to a UH-1H Huey with a single engine. The helicopters in the shots of the Wake Island were actual Marine Corps aircraft, two CH-46 Sea Knights and the UH-1N Huey. Later shots were helicopters belonging to the Moroccan Air Force, two CH-47 Chinooks and a UH-1H Huey, which were painted to look like the USMC helicopters. See more »

The ending was absurd! ("The Corps, the Corps, the Corps" - not understood by civilians.
Propaganda at its best (Closer to truth than you know..!!)
