Drums Along the Dusseldorf - S3-E30

Factual error: All through this episode, characters keep referring to the river the bridge *du jour* spans as "The Düsseldorf" or "Düsseldorf river." The city of Düsseldorf is situated on the river Rhine - there is no "Düsseldorf river." It's a well known fact that the producers were hardly geography whizzes, but not knowing the Rhine is bad even by their standards.

Everyone Has a Brother-in-Law - S2-E23

Factual error: Schulz repeatedly calls Klink's adjutant "Kapitän." In the German armed forces the rank Kapitän only exists in the Navy, the German equivalent for the American rank of Captain (which is obviously meant here) is Hauptmann or Stabshauptmann.

Reservations Are Required - S1-E15

Character mistake: In this episode, Hogan suggests a helicopter as means for escape from Stalag 13. As a matter of fact, the allies had no helicopters operational before April 1944. The famous R-4 made its first flight only in January 1942. So unless Hogan planned to steal one of the Luftwaffe's 20 FW Drache (a maximum of ten or so existing at any given time) or a whole bunch of the single-seat Flettner Kolibri (24 total built) he was out of luck.

Anchors Aweigh, Men of Stalag 13 - S1-E16

Character mistake: Klink claims that the North Sea is about sixty miles from Stalag 13, in reality however the town of Hammelburg and thus the nearby camp are about three-hundred miles from the North Sea.

Duel of Honor - S3-E22

Other mistake: Towards the end, the shot of the plane landing is a recycled shot. Even though Klink waved the flashlight, an unidentified person can be seen in the shot waving a signal light in the midst of the field. Klink was by his car.

Hogan, Go Home - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In Hogan's quarters, as he and Critendon are talking, his arms are by his sides, and suddenly crossed. As Hogan goes to get his hat off Critendon's sword, his right hand is shown, then after the angle changes, his left hand draws back with the hat, and his right comes up to grab it.

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.

Factual error: In several episodes, Hogan and his men are confronted with mobile missile launchers. These are depicted as a missile on a flatbed from which it is launched at the push of a button. While there existed mobile German missile launchers for the A4 missile better known as "V2", they consisted of a whole column of trucks, among them a transport truck for the missile with erector hydraulics, at least two tankers for the fuel, a control vehicle and several other trucks full of equipment, not counting the transport capability for a dozen or more operators that were necessary to launch them. Also the missiles weren't launched from the transport vehicles, but placed on mobile launch racks that were transported separately.

Nights in Shining Armor - S3-E8

Other mistake: In Hogan's quarters, after Hogan reveals the two Aces up Newkirk's sleeve, Newkirk goes to brush his hair. As his hand goes up, you can see the cards in his hand.

No Names Please - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: In Klink's quarters, Hogan is complaining about Berger's activities. As he does, he goes to eat a sandwich with his left hand. After the angle change, he has both hands on it.

The Flame Grows Higher - S1-E31

Continuity mistake: At the end, as Schultz and Hogan come out of the office, there is a blank wall, like a kind of foyer. Any shots of the front door from the inside show the door opens directly into the outer office of the secretary.

The Pizza Parlor - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: LeBeau hands Schultz the pan straight from the hot plate, but Schultz puts at least three fingers around it while eating without any apparent issues. Note that LeBeau earlier said the Crepe Suzette were "not quite ready yet" - or in other words, still cooking.

One in Every Crowd - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: After the cell door blows, you can see the fuse of the stick of "dynamite" Newkirk placed still burning on the ground. Since the dynamite would blow when the fuse is burnt up, that literally can't happen.

Factual error: Baker and Kinchloe, the radio experts of the troupe, often use Morse code to communicate by radio. When they do, they hammer the Morse key in different intervals, but always just barely tap it. Morse code is made up of "short" and "long" beeps. To produce a "long" in Morse code, you have to hold the key down three times as long as you would for a "short". A tap would be a "short" - the beeps they are sending are spaced long and short, but that's not how Morse code works.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: As Schultz is addressing the formation after taking command, his swagger stick switches from his right hand to under his left arm after the camera angle changes. Also, a minute later, Carter goes from being beside Newkirk to being in front of him and back again in a few seconds.

The Dropouts - S6-E14

Other mistake: Baker goes to tap the rectangular spot to open the trapdoor, not only does he hit it once rather then twice, but it sticks in the pressed position. A moment later, Hogan hits it, but it stays in the pressed position rather than popping out. The sound of the pressing is played, but the button doesn't move.
