The Kids - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye is examining the orphan who is wiggling his tongue, there are two camera angles: one of Hawkeye from the front and one of the orphan over Hawkeye's shoulder. In the first shot, the tongue depresser that Hawkeye is holding is horizontal, in the other it is vertical. This flips back and forth a couple of times.

Depressing News - S9-E12

Operation Noselift - S2-E18

Revealing mistake: When Baker is talking with Father Mulcahy it is clear that Baker's nose is prosthetic. The colour doesn't match as well as it does in other scenes.

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Factual error: In "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen", the shot of the helicopter pilot's hands show him wearing Nomex flight gloves. These were not used until 1967 in Vietnam. Black leather flying gloves were used during the Korean war.

Der Tag - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: Along with Radar holding an anachronistic comic book (the Avengers), the exact issue changes between wide and close shots. One has the older Avengers logo used in the '60s and very early '70s, while the second issue Radar is holding has the newer Avengers logo that just gained currency as the episode was being filmed.

For the Good of the Outfit - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: Frank is shaving; when he bends down to pick up the envelope containing shrapnel fragments, the foam on his face and ear suddenly all dries up. The shot must have needed a lot of takes.

(Note: there was no indication that this was supposed to be her mistake.)
