Visible crew/equipment: As Quatermass drives back to the spaceship in a cab, just before it is to be drilled, the film crew can be easily seen in the cab's windows. A woman with a white cap can be seen holding a script. Later when the police use a megaphone on their car to announce the spaceship is a hoax, you can again see the same woman with a white cap in one of the windows of the police car.Larry Koehn
Continuity mistake: At the beginning, the scientists are told they are being sent to study the strange fact that seven meteors landed near each other in a V formation. The government agent even traces a V on the board with his finger. When they get to the field, panoramic shots show that there are nine meteors, and they are in a 3 by 3 grid, not a V.
