The t-shirt that Willy wears through most of the last third of the movie is from Camp Kishauwau Boy Scout Camp near Tonica, Illinois. It closed in the early 1980s and was near Starved Rock, which is the graphic on the shirt.
The NTSB guys are here about that bulkhead problem.
Ted Crawford: OK, thanks.
The problem with this film is the fact that there is no delay time between the shooting and the beginning of the trial. Even though Crawford asks for his right to a speedy trial, this would not allow a proper investigation to take place, search for any pertinent witnesses, and, above all, allow the courts to schedule a free courtroom, judge, etc. to hear the case. Asking for a speedy trial still means that holding the trial has to accommodate the courts and court personnel and would mean delays of up to a couple of months. It's highly unlikely that scheduled court business would be pushed aside to accommodate Crawford's request.
The end credits contain, in all lower case letters, the following: "in memory of david ronne"
