Continuity mistake: When Bond and Holly escape from the control room below the rocket, Bond has his sleeves rolled up, and his lower arms are bare. However, later in the film he is wearing his wrist-arrow-gun. Where did that come from?

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond is in the helicopter being flown from the airport to Drax's estate, both landscape and weather change drastically from one moment to another as he approaches the castle. When the castle is first seen from the air in a long shot, it is surrounded by mountains and the sky is entirely clear. In the shots closer to the castle and from ground level, the mountains have disappeared and there are clouds in the sky. The cloud cover changes as well just after landing.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene, in the live transmission from the shuttle, there is a full shot of Bond and Holly who are covered by a sheet, and they are at least 4 meters from the camera. In the next shot Bond's face is right in the camera, and he can reach over and turn it off.

Continuity mistake: After the elaborate sequence showing each moonraker shuttle docking with the space station, a wide show of the station shows two shuttles frozen in space not attached to anything. The most prominent is the shuttle in the top foreground. The shot looks like a still photo with the exception of the spinning radar dish at the bottom of the station.
Continuity mistake: Bond is in his boat being pursued by Jaws in another boat, and as they approach the raging waterfall, Bond activates the emergency hang-glider concealed within the roof of his boat. He flies away and there is no shot of his boat going over the falls, nor is his boat shown still in the water leading up to the falls when Jaws' boat approaches the falls. Jaws and his boat are shown going over the falls, but Bond's boat seems to have simply disappeared. [During filming of the scene Bond's boat got stuck on some rocks and never went over the waterfall as planned. The stuntman doing the handglider stunt would not do it again, so they had to make do with the film they had shot. They only had 3 boats to film the boat chase - one "hero" boat, one to film the hand glider scene, and a empty boat shell to go over the waterfall, which was damaged by the rocks. Still a mistake, but there's why.]
