Continuity mistake: When Bond's Mercedes is on the railroad tracks, it is hit head on by an oncoming train. As it is shown sailing in the air backwards, it is very clear that the drive-train has been removed. When the car is shown again, it is now sailing nose first as it hits the water.
Factual error: At the East German / West German checkpoint, there is a level crossing. The warning signs for road traffic are clearly visible and are unique to the UK (where the shot was filmed).
M: Remember, 007, you're on your own.
James Bond: Well, thank you, sir. That's a great comfort.
Trivia: The tiger who briefly appears during the tiger hunt sequence is actually a stuffed tiger pushed out on a wheelbarrow.
Question: The opening scene shows a military base with an equestrian event taking pace, which Bond infiltrates and places a bomb in an aircraft before getting caught, then escapes with the aid of his assistant and a small jet aircraft. How was this related to the rest of the plot?
