Goofs

While planes can extend their time aloft via aerial refueling, it would not be possible for a plane to stay aloft for 3 years only landing 30 times briefly to take on abductees. Planes require periodic maintenance. In the case of the Airbus A380 used by Crispin, it has a maintenance requirement that takes 55 days to complete, and this must be performed every 18 months to 2 years. Quantas for example spends 12 hours per week per aircraft. Every eight to 10 weeks, filters will be changed, key systems such as hydraulics will be lubricated and a detailed inspection of all the emergency equipment completed. A typical maintenance check on a Boeing 737 takes between six and 24 hours. Depending upon the nation of registration, it would be also be subject to periodic inspections to be deemed airworthy.

Pretty much perfection for a single episode ..
6 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Got to give credit to this production team. Just one season ago, they had only two arcs to work with (the Blacklister of the week, and the mysterious ever-perplexing Liz backstory) and maybe (no complaints from me) those were wearing a bit thin.

Now they have at least a half dozen plates spinning the air, just like those old acts on the Ed Sullivan show. And, joy of joys, they all work.

This episode is not merely great, it is also subtle. The only clue you will get of how entertained you actually are is that by the 30 minute mark you will think you have seen an hours worth of action, and you will not believe there is more still to come.

And keep your eye on Ryan Eggold. I was very unhappy when, in an earlier arc, he was "banished" and seemed to be leaving the show. This guy is mesmerizing. Prediction: someday he will have his own series.
