The Beast From the Belly of a Boeing - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The Boeing 747 in this episode is supposed to belong to Beller Air, however exterior shots show the TWA Airlines logo.

Mister Ed

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Factual error: When the team is in uniform for their friend's funeral, Smith and Peck (both commissioned officers) have their Special Forces insignias on their berets when they should have their rank insignia.

Mister Ed

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the A-Team drops watermelons on the pickup truck, the windshield shatters. The next shot after this, the truck flips over, but the windshield is intact.

Pros and Cons - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: As Hannibal and Murdock are coming over the wall of the jail in their hot-air-trash-bag chairs, you can see that the brick is a facade as the guard shoots at them. (41:25 / 41:39). (00:41:25)

Good Job!

The Beast From the Belly of a Boeing - S1-E13

Factual error: The hijacked plane is a Boeing 747 where the cockpit is on the upper deck. When the passengers are loading on the plane, the cockpit is shown on the lower deck.

Mister Ed

Mexican Slayride (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the team is escaping with Al, BA swipes a truck. After loading everyone in, he puts a pin in to hold the gate on the driver's side. When they meet up with Face & Murdock at the helicopter, Hannibal jumps out, pulls one pin from the passenger's side, and the gate swings down.

Pros and Cons - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When Hannibal drives the blue car into the sheriff's office trying to get arrested, the wooden jump ramp is visible.

Mister Ed

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. (00:02:50 - 00:04:20)

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: The tow truck that gets flipped at the end is different from the one used throughout the episode.

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: As the van takes off after dropping Face and Murdock at the diner, the camera and crew are reflected on the side.

The Beast From the Belly of a Boeing - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: As Hannibal, made up as Beller, walks up the steps, Jackson looks at Beller's picture on a magazine. A moment later, the magazine's back cover is facing him.

One More Time - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: As the bolt flies toward the fuel can, you can see the pre-cut spot where it will hit. Then as it hits the canister changes completely as the dark strip where the bolt hits disappears. (00:41:40)

Movie Nut

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The chain for the air horn is being pulled by Hannibal's right hand. Suggesting it's mounted over the driver's right side, in the middle of the cab. A second later, the chain is seen swinging at the top right of the shot on Hannibal. (00:20:15)

Movie Nut

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The trailer on the semi that Murdock takes disappears then reappears between shots. (00:17:40 - 00:18:50)

Movie Nut

The Out-of-Towners - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In the Sugar Hill Club, as Hannibal confronts East Side Charlie, the neck of the bottle on Charlie's table goes from showing above the red napkin to hidden and back several times.

Movie Nut

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Other mistake: The van has three silver antennas in a line on top. As they stand by it, you see the first two, but only the base of the third.

Movie Nut

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Audio problem: In the motel, Woody Woodpecker's laugh does not match up to the motion on the screen.

Movie Nut

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Other mistake: As the thug's car gets disabled and the hood flies off, the car swerves, and slows way down. As such, there's no way it had enough momentum to hit the convenient "dirt mound" ramp and do a spectacular flip and roll.

Movie Nut

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As the chopper that is piloted by Murdock comes down over and behind the thug's car, you can see the the man in the left seat has a ball cap and brown jacket on, but the man in the right seat has a dark sweater, shades, and headphones on. In the close up, it's Murdock and the Professor.

Movie Nut

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Other mistake: As Murdock takes off with the professor in the chopper, you can see studio equipment and lighting reflecting off the surface.
