To Russia with Love (1) - S3-E24

Character mistake: While talking with Falcon, Harm mentions the "green book" Falcon stole that listed all of the American POWs transferred to Russia after the Vietnam War. But when Harm originally found the book in "Ghost Ship", its cover was yellow.

Washington Holiday - S2-E9

Factual error: In the whole episode, Romania is depicted as a monarchy with the king in a position that allows him to make political decisions. However, Romania ceased to be a monarchy in 1947. By the time depicted in the episode (circa 1997), Romania was a republic and its head of state was the president. Members of the ex-royal family did not hold any positions in the Romanian government and were certainly not authorized to represent Romania in international events.

Empty Quiver - S8-E17

Continuity mistake: When Rabb lands at Norfolk the number of the chopper is 426, there he meets Commander Turner who says that he takes the same chopper as transport to the submarine. The Sea Knight is the last transport to leave the base before lock-down. When the same chopper approaches the USS Crawford it suddenly has the number 62.

Continuity mistake: Just as the F-14's are coming under fire from the ship, we are shown the pilots. One of the pilots, "Pendry" was killed when his F-14 crashed due to a malfunction in the earlier episode 'Pilot Error'. As such, "Pendry" could not have been fired on in this episode since he was already deceased.

Rendezvous - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Bud is shredding the satelite photograph, when he turns around to talk to Harriet, a microphone dips into the scene for a quick second.

Other mistake: Throughout the whole show there are several shots of submarines, aircraft carrier landings, chopper flights that are exactly the same in different episodes.

Continuity mistake: Season 9, Episode 5, "Touchdown:" When they try to land the C130 on the aircraft carrier, the co-pilot says that they don't have the right landing gear down, so she goes to the back to instruct one of the passengers how to lower the gear manually. The problem is that they lower the left gear, which was already down.

Ghosts of Christmas Past - S5-E11

Factual error: There would never be a show on the deck of a carrier while there are missions being flown.

In Country (1) - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: The hull number shown for the USS Seahawk shown in this episode was "74" (in real life, the USS John C. Stennis), however, JAG has always used that hull number to refer to the show's 'other carrier', the USS Patrick Henry.

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: I was so bugged by protocol errors in early episodes that I stopped watching. For example, there were at least 2 episodes where Navy or Marine officers in utility uniforms were wearing Army brass on their collars. In one episode, "Harm" is walking with his female partner through a garage. He returns the salute of an enlisted man who walks by, but she doesn't. In any event, the garage was indoors, where Naval Service protocol says you don't salute.

A Tangled Webb (3) - S8-E24

Continuity mistake: As Harm & Mac are taking off, Mac reminds Harm how much she hates flying, especially since the last time they went up, they crashed & she was stabbed in the leg ("Full Engagement"). In that episode though, Mac is shot, not stabbed. The comment is also in error as the last time the two went flying was when they flew a MIG-29 & ejected after being fired upon in "To Russia With Love".

Show generally

Factual error: Season 9 Episode 5, "Touchdown": When they approach the aircraft carrier, the copilot says that the number two engine is flaming out. This means there is no more fuel to run that engine. That supposedly also means that there is not enough fuel for a fire alarm lighting up in the cockpit, which is what happens in the show. (Verified by a USMC Staff Sergeant who flew 8 years on a C130).

Dangerous Game - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: The scenes that appeared on the television that the Sheriff was watching at the beginning was from the 1970's movie, "Smokey & The Bandit". Several of the clips were out of order, not to mention jumping from the beginning of the movie, then close to the end.

Mr. Rabb Goes to Washington - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: The lone shark's thugs break down Mac's door trying to get to her husband, Chris Ragle, who is hiding in her apartment. Although the door is splintered to pieces, later that night, the same door is back in perfect condition, including the custom paint job that matches the interior decor of the apartment.

Head to Toe - S7-E15

Factual error: Lt.Col. Sarah Coffey wears the USAF uniform, but an Army insignia on her left collar (the MI "splatted bug"). An Air Force officer wears identical insignia on right and left collars (a dark oak leaf, in this case).

Recovery - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: The death of the astronaut occurring while practicing the escape in the bucket would never happen in real life. That is because when NASA conducts them in real life before a shuttle launch, the crew practices everything up to entering the bucket. NASA does not want to run the risk of their astronauts being injured during a simple practice.

Jinx - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Harm's cockpit canopy is smashed, he and Ayers continue to fly with their masks off - one would have thought that wearing oxygen masks would have made things easier in that situation

Recovery - S1-E19

Factual error: NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building is located at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida - not Vandenberg AFB, CA

Add time

Ares - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: The hull number on the ballcaps of the sailors on the USS Daniel Boone doesn't match the hull number of the ship used to portray it. The hull number on the caps, DDG-72, is currently assigned to the Arleigh Burke-class Destroyer, USS Mahan.

Add time

Tiger, Tiger - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Bud tells Harm that he was 11 years old when he took his first 'Tiger' cruise on the USS Arleigh Burke. However, the Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) was commissioned in 1991, which means Bud would only be 18 years old at the time of this episode.

Quotes

Vivian Blackadder: Amad bin Atwa supplied money and explosives to Hasan Mohammed, who executed the attack on the Cole. They're an all-Jihad team that's been together for nine years. If Bin Atwa gives up Hasan, I want in on the kill.
Gibbs: We're not tasked with capturing Hasan Mohammed.
Vivian Blackadder: Gibbs, my brother died on the Cole.
Gibbs: I know that.
Vivian Blackadder: Then get me in on this!
Gibbs: You're not here to use NCIS as your personal instrument of revenge. You get your head around this murder case, or you pull your tailored suit out of mothballs and you march your butt right back to the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

Trivia

When Harm is landing the 747, there is a camera shot of Air Force One. (The Presidential seal which is located near the forward doors is briefly visible) There is also a scene immediately afterwards of vehicles following the plane on the runway. These two scenes are from the Harrison Ford movie, Air Force One.
