You Only Live Twice

Plot hole: Right after Bond escapes Blofeld and joins Tanaka and Kissy, they say they need to get to the Control Room (that Bond just left from), they look at the "front door" to the Control Room and Tanaka says "Impossible! It's too well defended!". Why did they not go back the way Bond just came from, through Blofeld's "apartment"? Instead, they fight their way across the entire launching complex and go through another entrance, which ALSO leads through Blofeld's "apartment".

Plot hole: The ferocious battle in the crater ends instantly when Bond blows up the space ship. Why? Aren't Blofeld's men still going to try to defend themselves? How do they know Bond has succeeded in his mission? They can't see the control room, let alone the television sets.

Plot hole: In the volcano base, Bond finds and frees three captured astronauts - two Russians and an American. But when they enter the SPECTRE astronauts' room, there are only two of them with Bond (and there is no indication that the third one was seriously hurt in the previous struggle with the guards); and after Bond is dressed in the spacesuit, they disappear from the story altogether.

Plot hole: At the end, we see pictures of the space shuttle several times on a TV screen. Where is the camera to film that?

Plot hole: Blofeld tells the bad guys that they had Bond and let him get away. The woman says "but Bond is dead. It was in all the papers." As we saw in a paper near the start, there was a well publicised photo of Bond, and when she met him he wasn't using any kind of disguise, so how did she not recognise him if she'd seen the papers?

Plot hole: The American spacecraft is said to be scheduled for launch at midnight Japanese time. But from the place in the movie where it is shown it is late afternoon or early evening.
