Hogan's Heroes (1965)

3 mistakes in Psychic Kommandant

Psychic Kommandant - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: At the end, when the boys are in formation and Klink is walking through the ranks, he walks around Hogan's right side. As he does so, you can see LA's Desilu water tower.

Psychic Kommandant - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: When the High Command men are watching the "noiseless engine" plane, the camera cuts to a shot of the four of them in the car. To the right (camera's left) of the man in the right side, back seat, you can see LA's Desilu water tower.

Psychic Kommandant - S1-E25

Plot hole: Hogan's men steal the motor from the silent plane. When Klink and Burkhalter inspect the plane, Burkhalter doesn't notice the engine missing. Later Klink doesn't notice the fact that it has been put back. This is totally impossible for two reasons: Firstly, if a propeller airplane misses its motor, there is no place to mount the propeller. Secondly, when we get to see the whole plane, it becomes obvious that it has an open engine cowling which leaves the motor exposed to be cooled by the airstream. The propeller issue aside, if there is enough light to see the hand in front of your eyes, it is impossible to miss either the presence or the absence of an engine inside that kind of cowling. Add to this the fact that both Klink and Burkhalter are Luftwaffe (Air Force) officers and therefore by trade have some experience with airplanes, the whole thing becomes even more ridiculous.
