Continuity mistake: Season 4 Episode 5 The Sleeping Beauty: When Taylor calls Ryan in the middle of the night (around 03:03 when he first checks), the second time Ryan checks the time on his radio it shows 03:23, however it jumps back to 03:04 when he looks again.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Colleen and Becky are talking to the boy, there is a boy walking in the background. When he loses his hat, he is behind the boy talking to the girls. In the next shot he is already behind the two girls, which is quite a great distance to cover in a split-second. (00:06:30)
Factual error: When they have to jettison fuel during their final approach to the aircraft carrier, Rabb tells his co-pilot to dump 200 pounds of fuel. That is about 30 Gallons (about two normal car tanks). But there is way too much fuel being dumped to be only 30 gallons.
Continuity mistake: When they try to land the C130 on the aircraft carrier, the co-pilot says that they don't have the right landing gear down, so she goes to the back to instruct one of the passengers how to lower the gear manually. The problem is that they lower the left gear, which was already down.
Revealing mistake: When the plane approaches the aircraft carrier, they have to dump fuel, and the fuel comes out through the back. However it should be coming out on the wing tips. So they had a tank of water or something similar that they sprayed out through the back. (Confirmed by a Staff Seargent with the USMC who flew 8 years on a C130.)

Factual error: Season 9 Episode 5, "Touchdown": When they approach the aircraft carrier, the copilot says that the number two engine is flaming out. This means there is no more fuel to run that engine. That supposedly also means that there is not enough fuel for a fire alarm lighting up in the cockpit, which is what happens in the show. (Verified by a USMC Staff Sergeant who flew 8 years on a C130).
Factual error: During the approach on the aircraft carrier, they had to put out the gear manually. The copilot shouts that she has three greens (meaning that all gears are down and locked), then she puts the gear lever up. If that is done, the gear would raise again or be in an unsafe position for the landing.
Factual error: Pilot: When the woman is giving birth and Dr. Quinn has to perform a c-section, she gives the baby to Mrs. Cooper, and after about a minute, she gives the baby to the mother. Dr. Quinn then leans towards Mrs. Cooper and they smile happily; she doesn't attempt to continue the "surgery". Even nowadays doctors need several minutes to close up again after a c-section, so there is no way that Dr. Quinn was anywhere near finished. Leaving the patient cut open on the bed is pretty irresponsible, something she would never do as she has to prove that she is a good M.D. (00:30:00)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Dubenko is explaining a chemical reaction to the other doctors he starts to write on the wall. In the first shot he writes the following: 2H+ + H then the camera focuses on his audience and we hear continuing writing, then the camera cuts back to Dubenko when on the wall the following is written: 2H+ -> A. (00:24:00)
