Depressing News - S9-E12

Factual error: When Klinger's walking with Captain Allen and the Stars and Stripes photographer, just before their introductions to "Ben" they pass an empty corrugated box with its flap open, and the recycling symbol can be seen on the flap. Recycling symbols were not in use until about 20 years later.

Visible crew/equipment: When Colonel Potter and Charles exit the mess tent carrying the trays, so they can serve breakfast in bed to the winners, they split up and as Charles walks to the Swamp saying, "What a shame to have wasted all these years as a doctor," we have a great view of the boom and boom mic at the left side of the screen as it moves backwards away from Charles, outside the Swamp.

Your Retention Please - S9-E7

Visible crew/equipment: In the overhead exterior shot of the compound, when Colonel Potter calls everyone's attention to the situation regarding "crackerjack corpsman" Sergeant Hutchinson, as the shot pans out we can see the boom and the boom mic at the top left corner of the screen. Then when Margaret calls on Hutchinson to come forward, the boom mic is moving around at the top of the screen, and it's still there when Klinger rides out on Sophie.
