The Softer They Fall - S5-E18

Factual error: Burkhalter refers to Jesse Owens winning the gold medals in the Berlin Olympics, and that Hitler left the stadium every time Owens was to be presented a medal. Truth was, Hitler left the stadium when another black man won the day before, and didn't snub Owens at all. In fact, Hitler wasn't in attendance the days Owens won.

The Defector - S5-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As Hogan, Le Beau, Kinch, and Schultz talk at the car, the boom mike is reflected in the chrome and on the hood.

The Antique - S5-E12

Character mistake: Schultz states "In Hammelburg, they call me die Glitterzehe", which is a literal (but wrong) translation of the term "twinkle toes." That term does not exist in German, and even if it did, it would have to be GlitZerzehe, because the German word for twinkling is 'glitzern', the word 'glittern' does not exist.

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: During the main part of the plot, the guys are putting dynamite on each truck in the convoy as they fuel up at Stalag 13. It is supposed to be dark, (hence the reason the boys wear black) but there are shadows as if it were day. It's impossible for the driver in the following truck and the guard in the tower to miss seeing the boys as they go back and forth to plant charges.

Standing Room Only - S5-E21

Other mistake: The men are usually all wearing boots. When Carter goes up the ladder, it's clear that he has high-top sneakers on.

Klink's Escape - S5-E26

Other mistake: As Hogan and Kinchloe sit on the bunk to keep the trap door from opening, the secret switch to activate it is visible.

Standing Room Only - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: The whole operation is supposed to be at night, but when the original seven approach the gate to surrender, it's late afternoon, and very light.

Movie Nut

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Other mistake: As the boys are unloading the truck, one of the cases is WEIN (wine) , and marked with a 'Z' in the corner. In Season 4 Episode 22 "The Purchasing Plan", the boxes marked "Z" were boxes containing nitro glycerin for the underground.

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: In Klink's quarters, As Schultz and Klink talk, Klink asks a question and takes a bite of steak, and the fork is still up. After the angle change, the fork is suddenly missing.

Movie Nut

Get Fit or Go Fight - S5-E16

Factual error: In the rec hall where Klink is weightlifting, there is an advertisement poster for the Grindelwald region on the wall, which is in Switzerland. The German propaganda poured a lot of money into promoting the Reich's own recreational regions through the "Kraft durch Freude" program. With the war going badly, they especially wouldn't want a "Look how beautiful Switzerland is" poster in plain view of their troops every day.

Crittendon's Commandos - S5-E25

Character mistake: To have an excuse not to start up the truck motor, Schultz claims his driver's license has expired. German driver's licenses don't expire.

Doc

One Army at a Time - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: As in S5: Ep1 "Hogan Goes Hollywood", the bridge Hogan looks at through binoculars is vastly different than the one wired with explosives. When the bridge blows up, it is a re-use of the footage from earlier episodes.

One Army at a Time - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: Even though Carter pops his head out of the hatch to talk to Hogan, it isn't Carter that's seen in the window as the tank approaches Hogan's position.

Movie Nut

Get Fit or Go Fight - S5-E16

Visible crew/equipment: As Klink and Schultz approach the barracks where Le Beau is "weightlifting", there is a cord or cable along the ground that would be for studio equipment.

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: As Klink asks about the forecast, his hand is around the microphone end of the receiver, then a moment later it's around the handle.

Movie Nut

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In this episode, the picture next to the light switch wire is a group seated around a table. In "The Defector" (S5:Ep10) the picture was of Hitler making a speech, and the microphone he's speaking into hides the Heroes' bug.

Movie Nut

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: As the men are lined up, Klink starts to grill Hogan. Klink has his pistol aimed directly at Hogan, then it's at a 35 degree angle toward and close to Hogan's face. A moment later it's about two feet away from his face.

Movie Nut

The Big Picture - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In Room 210, Newkirk's sleeves are down to his wrists, but in the close up of his hands, the sleeves are totally missing.
