The scene where Barry's hiding boxes of cigars in his flight bag takes place in a 757 cockpit. In the background, you can see the flight deck instrumentation has been ripped out.
Among the last lines of the credits, the sentence "Yes, we know it's not El Salvador" is shown which is a reference to a joke about mistaking El Salvador for Nicaragua on the map. In fact, the country on the map was neither El Salvador nor Nicaragua - it was Honduras, hence the line in the credits.
