Goofs

It isn't clear what the purpose of the air strike was for. There was one plane in use which would have destroyed the area around the landing site of the crashed satellite. But there were numerous instances of dead animals spread all around the area, indicating that the deadly organism had already begun to spread out into the larger population, which should have meant the need of a large number of planes to bomb a much larger area.
