A Bell 206 JetRanger is used as a police helicopter during the finale - the Houston Police Department operated the Hughes 300 (light duty observation) and 500. Schweizer Aircraft (later Sikorsky) continues to build the Hughes 300 and the 500 was rebranded as the MD500 (McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Systems, now MD Helicopters since 1999 after Boeing divested the McDonnell Douglas civilian line of helicopters after the Boeing/McDonnell Douglas merger in 1997).

Some versions of the film feature an opening crawl after the opening credits that offers some exposition before the first scene begins. It reads: "On November 1st, 1988, Travis Knight witnessed the murder of a Texas mobster. The FBI has his family in protective custody. The mob wants to talk to Travis and find out for themselves who did the shooting. They want to talk to him right now. Travis Knight is 9 years old." This crawl is missing from some television airings, as well as the recent on-demand DVD released by MGM. In its place are several (somewhat awkward) seconds of black screen where it would usually be before the first scene begins. See more
