The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Other mistake: When the two women first see the bus pull up and get on, the next scene we see when it picks up BA is the same video footage as when it arrived to pick them up. You can also see the same pink neon lights in the reflection of the bus and bus stop before it quickly cuts away.

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Other mistake: As the team is chasing the thug's truck, they toss explosives at it. The charges miss on either side, but the truck is hit anyway. As the truck comes to a rest on its side you can see that there is no engine in it. Also, as the team stops at the truck, the head thugs come out from behind the truck and try to run. They didn't have enough time to get out, let alone get ready to run.

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: As the team is driving through the warehouse, they are shooting up the place. The time that the car can get from one side of the space inside to the other at their speed is about three seconds. Unless they were driving in circles, they stopped inside to shoot people with oil squirting hoses, shoot up and wreck the place and get going. Even though the sound said they were moving, the physics say otherwise.

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: While driving in and through the bad guy's warehouse, Murdock is driving and firing the gun on the driver's side. As the camera does a close up on him driving, you can see it is a reused shot of him driving outside, as you can see not only trees, but BA's relaxed arms behind him. Trouble there is that BA is firing the top mounted gun. Also, after the close up of Murdock, you see his left hand on the wheel. When the camera cuts to the driver's gun, his left hand is suddenly firing it, and behind that, you that the background isn't moving.

Good Job!

Without Reservations - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: The whole start of this episode is exactly the same footage from S1E9 Holiday in the Hills. This gives rise to a small mistake when Frankie boards the plane. This shot must have been filmed years after the rest of the opening scene, as Frankie joins the A-Team only in season 5. You can see this when Hannibal catches the briefcase from Face: then the side of the plane has red identification lettering on its side. When Frankie finally boards the plane this lettering has disappeared, because it's another plane.
