I have noticed many things on repeated viewings. Many scenes that people were debating earlier. I will start by saying that - * I noticed that the Bat when flying over the sea, is switching on its jet engines, so its is not relying on its rotors to fly. So it can achieve Mach 1 speed. * The last time we get to see Batman in the Bat cockpit, is followed by the Bat just flying over the sea, then followed by a scene of the timer showing 5 seconds remaining. which allows the possibility that Batman had turned on the auto pilot mode and then he ejected out of the Bat in time.
