Historical photographs of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's real dinner with the Kennedys reveal that while everything about the Queen's dress and jewelry for the event is accurate, Jackie Kennedy's costume is NOT. Her gown was not strapless as portrayed in this episode and she wore much larger dangling pearl earrings which were shown off by her pulled-back, up-do hair (as opposed to the loose style shown in this episode).

When President Kennedy's coffin was taken off of Air Force One, the coffin left the front door of a 747. This is wrong on two counts: Air Force One was a derivative of a 707 (a much smaller airplane than a 747), and the coffin exited Air Force One through the aft passenger door.
Finally, Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, and a derivative of a 747 (called VC-25) didn't become Air Force One until 1990. See more
