The names of people who worked on this movie appeared several times. On the first issue of "The Chronicle" that reports the docking of the Hindenburg III at the Empire State Building, multiple headlines contain references to Kerry Conran and brother Kevin Conran (headline "Conran Ministry Force Deal"), Darin Hollings ("Dr. Hollings Speaks"), Omar McClinton ("McClinton seeks license to halt sanctions"), Brian LeachZack Petroc ("Leach and Petroc Break Over Budget"), and Stephen Lawes ("Lawes Held Ready to Aid U.S. Peace Action"). In the issue of "The Chronicle" with the headline "Giant Machines Steal Refineries", the article is shown to be written by Marsha Oglesby, one of the executive producers. Although dim lighting makes it practically invisible in this movie, there is a list next to the giant wall map in the Flying Legion base, which contains the last names of several crew members.
Attention. Please prepare for docking procedure.
The German rocket's display showing its height contains three spelling mistakes: "VERSTARKER" (booster, amplifier) should be written with A-umlaut and the plural of kilometer is simply kilometer, without s at the end, and since nouns are capitalized in German it should actually read "Kilometer".
Laurence Olivier is given a major on-screen credit, despite only being in the film through archive footage and having another actor voice his character's lines.
