When Jane Marke is presenting the airplane to Xander Cage, she claims that the airplane has been modified to "have enough fuel to circumnavigate the Earth three times without landing".
The airplane is a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, which originally has a maximum fuel range of ~11 000 km, if it's (more or less) empty(this number is halved if there is any payload). To do this, the airplane needs ~134 500L of fuel. If it is going to circumnavigate the earth three times(~120 225km), it would require ~1,5 million liters of fuel, more than 10 times the original capacity. If they actually did add this amount of fuel (and fuel tanks) to the airplane, the airplane would have a takeoff weight of 132 000 metric tonnes, which is ~5 times max takeoff weight, and 1700 times the payload for the C-17.
Another point to this, is that the C-17 Globemaster III is capable of Air to Air refueling, meaning that they can, at least when it comes to fuel, fly indefinitely as long as they get AtA refuels. See more »

With foreign investments, it did not indicate that the production house had to add in so many unnecessary foreign elements into the movie. Is it even necessary to start off the story in a Chinese restaurant? Where was the link? Foreign elements should be added if they were needed to tell the story and not simply just to please the foreign investors. They only make the story weaker. The story line of the movie was ridiculously unbelievable, and the screenplay was absolutely disappointing. The lines were so pale and redundant. It lacked what a big blockbuster movie should have. No explanation was given for many scenes, and it became very puzzling and exaggerating. This was not a small budget movie, but it turned out to be one brainless movie.
