(at around 22 mins) The plane they take off in to go to Miami is a DC-10 200, while the plane they land in Miami is a DC-10 300. The difference is noticeable because of the presence of a third set of main gear when they land, which is absent when they take off.
On Network TV versions of the film, 2 scenes are added to fill time. One scene had Captain Harris and Lieutenant Proctor arriving at the hotel in Miami with a goat they had on their airplane. One scene occurs in the Police showcase area where people are trying out various items such as pepper spray, handcuffs, and bulletproof car shields; Tony is seen talking to a friend of his named Larry. He tries to get Larry to talk Commandant Lassard into giving him the camera with the stolen diamonds in it by telling him a story of how his dead wife had a camera just like the one Lassard's carrying. Feeling pity for him, Lassard is about to hand Larry the camera until Larry asks "is there anything I could do for you in return". Lassard says yes and has Larry take an official Police fingerprint identification test. Larry's discovered to be "a known felon" and he runs off without the camera. Tony and his goons walk casually away followed by Tony getting upset and hitting a police car shield with his hand and hurting it.
