Trivia

It is revealed that the coordinates for the island are approximately: 140 degrees latitude and 10 degrees longitude. See more »

Goofs

The radio announcer gives the target coordinates for the Powderkeg missile as 140 degrees latitude, 10 degrees longitude, which the Skipper (an old salt in these waters) and Professor confirm. Lines of latitude only go up to 90 degrees. Transposing the coordinates, though (to 10 degrees N latitude, 140 degrees W longitude) would place the missile several hundred miles southeast of Hawaii - the approximate location of their island.

Regarding Latitude and Longitude
8 March 2014 | by (reno nevada USA) – See all my reviews

a number of times in this episode the location: 140 degree latitude and 10 degrees longitude.

I think this has been reversed as latitude doesn't go higher than 90 degrees.

the north pole is 90 degrees north latitude for example. The equator is zero.

I THINK , therefore, they meant to say: 140 degrees longitude and 10 degrees north latitude.

despite this, I did enjoy the episode.

also the plane in question, at least as it goes away is a B45 Tornado, one of the earliest jet bombers of the USAF and also used a Recon plane.

remember latitude is like a ladder that you climb north or south of the equator

longitude is the LONG lines on the globe starting at zero which runs through Greenwich England, the PRIME meridian of Longitude!
