The plane from the outside appeared to be a twin-engined Convair 240/340/440, but from the inside was a four-engined DC-6 or DC-7.

Revealing mistakes 

Rain water can be seen trickling strait down Bob's window, indicating that the "plane" is not moving. In flight the rain water would be blown straight back. At the speed these old planes flew, you would only see tiny trickles of water, even in very heavy rainstorms.
