The A-Team mistake picture

Labor Pains - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the beginning during the bridge jump scene, the A-Team van changes. It suddenly has round headlights, its hub caps can be seen popping off when it lands, and it doesn't have any spotlights. The real van has double square shaped headlights, steel spoked rims, and spotlights.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Throughout numerous episodes while the team is supposed to be driving the van, the gear selector can be seen in the "park" position.

The Beast From the Belly of a Boeing - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The Boeing 747 in this episode is supposed to belong to Beller Air, however exterior shots show the TWA Airlines logo.

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Factual error: When the team is in uniform for their friend's funeral, Smith and Peck (both commissioned officers) have their Special Forces insignias on their berets when they should have their rank insignia.

Pros and Cons - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: As Hannibal and Murdock are coming over the wall of the jail in their hot-air-trash-bag chairs, you can see that the brick is a facade as the guard shoots at them. (41:25 / 41:39).

Diamonds 'n' Dust - S2-E1

Factual error: The A-Team go to South Africa to help a diamond mine, and every single vehicle is left-hand drive. South Africa use right-hand drive cars.

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the A-Team drops watermelons on the pickup truck, the windshield shatters. The next shot after this, the truck flips over, but the windshield is intact.

A Little Town With an Accent - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: When Sonny Marlini gets in his car at the gas station and drives off (after Hannibal has refused his offer), a movie light can be seen reflected in the car's window.

Labor Pains - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: The Ballot Box label is written backwards: TOLLAB XOB. May be an indication that the shot was flipped. (41:50).

When You Comin' Back, Range Rider? (1) - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the A-Team van is pulled out of the water, Captain Crane opens the door to look inside for bodies; you can see right through the front of the van. There is no engine and it is simply a shell of the van.

Blood, Sweat, and Cheers - S4-E8

Character mistake: In the scene where Jack is phoning Col. Decker to give him the A-Team's location, the camera zooms to a wanted poster of the three members. The poster lists Faceman as the rank of Captain, instead of Lieutenant.

Quarterback Sneak - S5-E4

Factual error: When the two men are watching the soccer game between the USA and East Germany, look at the 'East' German shirts - they are actually WEST German shirts (white with black trim, with even the stylised eagle of the DFB (the West German Soccer Federation).

Bounty - S3-E22

Other mistake: The bridge jump scene in this episode is recycled from the season two episode "Labor Pains" where the van changes.

There's Always a Catch - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: While running from the hospital, BA has a camouflage top on. When they are getting away in the van, BA's top changes from camo to a pink top with black tiger stripes.

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Other mistake: After the team stops the rig, the driver jumps up into his cab to get a phone. When he picks up the receiver an it has an analog dial wheel in it. But when he dials, it's on the unseen console.

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: After the Watkins Brothers run the A-Team Van off the road and the van flips; the Van suddenly becomes a Ford Econline van with Stock wheels, very much different from the original red turbine mag wheels on the GMC.

The Out-of-Towners - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When the A-Team visits the bad guys' Sugar Hill Club, after shooting the place up and dumping the garbage truck, BA gets out of the garbage truck leaving the door open, the next shot the door is closed, the next shot the door is open and closes, and for the final shot as they exit it's open.

The Beast From the Belly of a Boeing - S1-E13

Factual error: The hijacked plane is a Boeing 747 where the cockpit is on the upper deck. When the passengers are loading on the plane, the cockpit is shown on the lower deck.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: John "Hannibal" Smith's rank changes from to Colonel to Lieutenant Colonel in different shows. In some of the early episodes we see him in uniform as Lt. Col. but in later episodes such as when they are on trial, Smith is wearing the rank of Full Colonel.
