While we’re nitpicking about unrealistic bits on last night’s “24″ debut, I would note that a couple of times they referred to having “a 767 no longer responding to air traffic control” flying out of Reagan National, but that type of aircraft is too large to fly under restrictions at that airport. Also, I’m fairly certain that the “Sunrise International” flight that [spoiler] had the near-collision was listed on the traffic controller as flying out of Reagan as well, not really explaining why an international carrier would be running flights between Washington, D.C., and New York City.
