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.
Factual error: At the East German / West German checkpoint, there is a level crossing. The warning signs for road traffic are clearly visible and are unique to the UK (where the shot was filmed).
Trivia: The tiger who briefly appears during the tiger hunt sequence is actually a stuffed tiger pushed out on a wheelbarrow.
M: Remember, 007, you're on your own.
James Bond: Well, thank you, sir. That's a great comfort.
General Anatoly Gogol: My government categorically denies the incident ever occurred.
Octopussy: Who is he?
Kamal Kahn: Englishman. Likes eggs, preferably Fabergé, and dice, preferably loaded.
Question: The opening scene shows a military base with an equestrian event taking pace, which Bond infiltrates and places a bomb in an aircraft before getting caught, then escapes with the aid of his assistant and a small jet aircraft. How was this related to the rest of the plot?
