Best war TV other mistakes of all time
Other mistake: A few times during the whole show there are certain shots where the corners of the screen are blacked out, as if a circular lens cap has been fitted to the camera. There seems to be no logical reason for this, therefore it has to be a mistake. One example is when Jonas is leaving his wife for the last time and he says 'there's a big battle brewing'.
Other mistake: When Heffron is taking his throw at darts, he states that he needs a "double seven". When he takes the throw, the dart goes into the treble eight (an earlier close-up confirms that the board has the standard Gamlin configuration), yet, from the reaction he gets, he's made the throw he was going for.
Other mistake: An Army friend of Ben's uses Ponderosa land to test his hot-air balloon. There are very few clouds in the sky. A balloon in flight is shown but it is obviously stock footage. The sky is filled with clouds and the film contains several black spots and scratches.
Other mistake: During the main part of the plot, the guys are putting dynamite on each truck in the convoy as they fuel up at Stalag 13. It is supposed to be dark, (hence the reason the boys wear black) but there are shadows as if it were day. It's impossible for the driver in the following truck and the guard in the tower to miss seeing the boys as they go back and forth to plant charges.

Other mistake: At about the 8 minute mark SnakeDoctor is talking on the radio to Bushmaster who is on the ground. There is a few seconds long shot where Bushmaster's earpiece is dangling wires and not connected to his Comms Gear on his vest. That earpiece can't be wireless.
Other mistake: After Lord Buntaro's archery demonstration, Blackthorne comes over to the post which now bears the three arrows shot by the Japanese. In the paper wall behind him a hole can be seen, which is to be the spot through which the arrows have come. but the arrows and the hole do not make one straight line, which would have to be the case if the missiles were to really have arrived from there.
