Octopussy mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bond takes off in the plane we see - in one shot from Bond's view - the Cubans approaching.The background is a flat (English) countryside. In the next clip we see a close-up of one of the Cubans. Behind him are quite large hills/mountains. (00:04:55)

Other mistake: Some of the shots of Kahn wrestling with the controls in the fight on the plane are reversed. The writing on the controls is backwards (eg RADAR JUNCTION BOX in the middle of the screen). (02:05:35)

Factual error: In the balloon scene it seems like Q can circle around and land on a spot where he flew past previously. A balloon can only fly in the direction of the wind.

Trivia: The "blink and you'll miss it" part of Smithers (Q's assistant who triggers the powerful door-slam) is played by Jeremy Bulloch. Only worth noting because we see his face for once, as he's most famous for a part where he wears a mask - Boba Fett in the Star Wars sequels.
