Trivia
In an article entitled "Rookie Stunts, Effects Dazzle Viewer" published in the January 1991 edition of 'American Cinematographer', special effects supervisor John Frazier said of this movie, "You know, things went really well, but you have to give credit to everyone involved. Clint Eastwood and [production manager] David Valdes really gave us the time and their confidence to do it right. We were never really rushed, which is so important. We were able to do every one of the major shots in one take: the car out of the building, the carrier turning over and the planes colliding. That says something. These guys respect the crew and every job being done. It makes a big difference".

Goofs
After Pulovski kills Strom, Strom disappears around the bend on the luggage belt, but he never shows up again while Pulovski and Ackerman sit in front of it.

Shortly after Pulovski shoots Strom in the head Raul Julia's eyes move.

When Strom is going up the conveyor belt to the baggage carousel it is moving, but when he gets to the top it is stationary. The belt should be running since the carousel is running.
