Though it may be considered an error by some the patch on the Task Force 160's helicopter pilot's shoulder showing the symbol of the 82nd Airborne Division is correct. By military tradition any soldier is allowed to wear the insignia of a unit s/he had served in combat on the right shoulder of their uniform...their current assignment insignia would be on the left.

In order to put the plane at "30,000 feet in 45 seconds" as the pilot tells the Vice President he was going to do with Air Force Two, the plane would have to fly vertical at about 1100 MPH, far beyond the capabilities of a 747. See more »
I wasn't that eager to watch this movie, because I had seen some clips on TV shows reviewing it, and read reviews in newspapers...and none of them were very positive.
But on a rainy Sunday night, nothing else to do...i thought to myself...why not !? Have an open mind and go and see it.
And i must say I was pleasantly surprised !!! YES every normal thinking adult must know that the things you see in this movie are outrageous and simply couldn't ever happen that way. But so is most of what happens in any Bond movie ! So just forget about that part of it all...and decide if the movie is entertaining, and i thought it was !
Channing Tatum, James Woods, Maggie Gyllenhaal and little Joey King did really good work ! The only negative for me in this movie was Jamie Foxx, and I don't even know what it was that bothered me about him in this movie, but I just didn't think he was the best choice for that part !
