Bombsight - S5-E7

New this month Continuity mistake: All through the episode, we are in a snowy, wintry camp surrounded by hills and trees. The target Gen. Burkhalter points out however is a little shed on a flat-as-a-board prairie with not a flake of snow OR a single hill visible anywhere, and the brown grass of late summer. (Yes I noticed there are some mountains off in the distance. So not relevant for this mistake).

Bombsight - S5-E7

Factual error: About 10 minutes into the show, Newkirk is using binoculars to watch Klink put the combination into his safe. He goes one direction for the first number, the opposite direction for the second number, then goes in the same direction for third number. Opposite for the fourth number. For the radial tumblers to set, it has to be alternating directions.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: When the homing bomb hits Burkhalter's car because Klink used the radio, you can see the mini tank from "Tanks for the Memory" (s2e9) sticking out of the wreckage.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: After Newkirk photographs the blueprints, he loosely rolls them up and goes to hand them to Carter. A second later, they are tightly rolled with a rubber band around them.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: The boxes being carried into the buildings in the beginning of the episode were about sixteen inches high by three feet long. When the bomber plane is dropping bombs, what drops out is a lot bigger than the dimensions of the boxes.

Plot hole: Newkirk says the he'll have the film developed in about ten minutes, and goes into Hogan's wall locker. Why? They have a darkroom down in the tunnel.

Visible crew/equipment: After Carter (hidden in the trash can) switches the fake blueprints for the real ones, Kinch wheels the trashcan past Klink. As he does so, the shadow of the camera is seen on the can.
