Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, Jeff activates Operation Cover-Up to change the wall-mounted pictures of the International Rescue members from the usual pictures of them in their uniforms to ones of them in casual clothing before a doctor who has just examined Kyrano enters the room. However, while he and Jeff are talking, a couple of shots of Scott and Gordon contain enough of the pictures to show that they have reverted back the ones of them in uniform. (00:48:35)

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Hood is taking photographs inside Thunderbird 1, we see a close-up of his hat. On the hat, it says "Airport Police" on the lens, but when we see a full view of the Hood, the words are no longer visible.

Revealing mistake: When we see the passengers in the departure lounge at London Airport, one of them is reading a newspaper. If you look carefully, the front page is on the wrong side; it is on the left instead of the right.

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Bob Meddings boards the Fireflash and grabs hold of the pipe, the pipe is red both in a long-shot and a shot of him grabbing hold of it. When we see Meddings moving his hands along the pipe, it is now silver.

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Trapped in the Sky - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Hood informs Commander Norman of Air Traffic Control that there is a bomb on Fireflash in the videophone booth, you can see that the Hood has one hand on the button panel, but the next shot shows him with both hands on the panel.

Continuity mistake: When Jeff pushes the button next to his seat to do "Operation Cover Up" at the end of the episode he is initially sitting down, but in the next scene he is standing up near the portraits of his sons.
