(at around 52 mins) The President's husband, HENRY Taylor has successfully persuaded the journalist KEVIN Aldridge to delay an anti-war broadcast until after the announcement of US action in the African state. The President's aide Bob Gunton (Ethan Kanin) announces this good news to the President but wrongly refers to the journalist as HENRY Aldridge, which is of course her husband's rather than the journalist's name.
(at around 15 mins) The cockpit shot of a commercial airliner shows the pilot with his hand on 4 throttle handles. In a close up the numbers 1 2 3 4 are clearly visible verifying this is a 4 engined aircraft cockpit. The exterior shots are of a 2 engined airliner taking off.
When the commercial airliner is taking off from Reagan National for JFK it taxis by a black sign with white "10" on it. This sign indicates the 10,000 ft location on a runway. The longest runway at National is only 6,869 feet.
When the airliner is cleared to descend from 28,000 to 7,000 feet en route JFK, you see a clip of the pilot pushing the throttles forward which increases thrust. To descend, a pilot would not increase thrust, rather they would push the yoke forward and reduce power by pulling back on the throttles.
