In one of the opening scenes of "The Hunt for Red October" (1990) dr Ryan is departing London Heathrow deeply in the evening (there's even a cameo with his wife claiming that plane is departing at 10 PM -- if I'm not mistaken).
Immediately after that we see an on-board scene (with discussion between Ryan and flight attendant about not sleeping during entire flight) followed by scene of welcoming Dr. Ryan in New York's airport, by a two some-kind-of secret service agents, during ... morning.
How this is possible? Taking flight length (7-8 hours) and time zone differences (five?) into account, plane departing London lands at any New York's airports just around 3 hour absolute/local time after departing. I.e. American Airlines departs LHR at 19:25 local time and lands at JFK at 22:35 local time.
Ryan departing London at 10 PM would most likely land at New York at 1 AM.
Not mentioning that there are (and there was no in 1980/1990) no late evening departs from London to New York due to night flights restrictions and thus entire pictured flight is impossible to take place.
This timing is certainly possible the other way, i.e New York to London. For example, United Airlines flight departs EWR at 22:05 local time and lands at LHR at 10:15 local time in the morning next day.
I know that this is a very small thing, not influencing this great movie at all. But, since this indeed is a great movie (I just love it) and I watched it about 20-30 times, I was always wondering about this.
